Sandy Danbury grew up a sailors daughter, in and around the dockyards of Portsmouth.  As a Fine Art student, influenced by the works of Fluxus and Marina Abramovic, photography became a crucial component with which to document the ephemeral nature of her conceptual performance and installation work.  She graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a BA (Hons) in Visual Studies in 1997.

In 2000, whilst working internationally as a financial investigator, she studied Design Photography at City of Westminster College.  A keen interest in Ecology prompted a move to South Africa and studies in Mammalian Biology and Ecology and Conservation.

Returning to the UK in 2005 she resumed her interest in photography, working independently for artists, performers and musicians in London, for venues including the Southbank Center and Shunt Vaults and for groups and publications such as The Wire and Beat Happening Magazine, Monorex Creative Design Agency and Brownswood Recordings.

Recent personal projects have taken her to Antarctica, Gaza, North Korea, Afghanistan, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali and Sudan and in 2010 she participated in a VII Photo Agency Masterclass in Chernobyl.  She now undertakes a wide range of assignments focusing on conflict and resolution, social documentary and environmental issues.
