Fellow Spotlight: Sasha Whittaker


While at City College, Sasha Whittaker (Art History Major, City College Fellow) discovered her passion for art history, and for the history of photography especially. The opportunity to study abroad in Prague and Kraków deepened her interest in art and architecture from Central and Eastern Europe. Her current research examines the activities of Czech and Polish photographers during the Cold War, focusing on the complicated relationship between artists and totalitarian states. She is excited to pursue this research project on a 2017-2018 Study/Research Grant to Poland.
