About Anita Sagastegui

Anita Sagastegui is a fine arts photographer whose work is guided by a sense of play and curiosity. In addition to practicing photography, Anita is an arts educator (K-8th) with an MA Art Education from Boston University. Anita finds enormous joy teaching visual arts, designing interdisciplinary curricula to promote a lasting understanding of concepts, ideas, processes and techniques while guiding students to cultivate visual literacy and an authentic, personal artistry. Anita and her family are frequent world travelers, but when not exploring the globe, they live, work, study and play in California. 

Artist Statement

“Learning to see—it is what photography teaches me to do every day. To notice color, line, light and shape. To indulge in my own ideas of mood, harmony and sensuality.  

Photography invites me to be surprised by the everyday world, and to be playful with it.  

I have been practicing photography for thirty years, always hovering in a liminal space between amateur and professional. I am continuously learning about and developing my craft, and I imagine myself still shooting thirty years from now, and still experiencing wonder and delight via this medium. “

-Anita Sagastegui
