Hailey Sadler is a photographer, researcher, and National Geographic Explorer based out of Washington, D.C.  She is drawn to narratives around trauma, memory, and identity, particularly in the aftermath of conflict and forced displacement. Hailey is a founder of  The Home Collective, a long-term documentary project creating a global record of the human experience with home.

 

Her work has been supported by grants from the National Geographic Society, Getty Images, Adobe, the IWMF, and Solutions Journalism Network, and published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Associated Press, PBS Newshour, BuzzFeed News, and more.  Her images have been exhibited in Washington, D.C., Barcelona, Baghdad, Berlin, and Amsterdam. 

Hailey's reporting and research is rooted in years of prior policy experience as senior staff for legislators serving on the House Armed Services and Intelligence Committees. She holds a Masters of International Public Policy concentrating on international conflict from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies where her capstone research project focused on the long-term impacts of intergenerational trauma after protracted war.

She is certified in emergency first aid and hostile environment awareness training (HEAT+) and is available for assignments worldwide.
