SVA alumna and faculty member Sarah Friedman (BFA 1993 Photography) recently spent five days in Senegal, Africa as one of several photographers assigned to cover teenage talent around the world for ESPN The Magazine. One of her images from that trip made the cover of the May 26, 2003 issue of the magazine. “I was very surprised to land Senegal; it was a dream come true,” she says. “I’ve always been fascinated with people and other cultures. Celebrity work doesn’t explore that as much. This felt more like a personal project.” Friedman has shot for the magazine numerous times in the past three years, including seven covers.
