Saunders began as a self-taught photographer, assisting and studio managing for a number of established photographers while studying at The School of Visual Arts and The International Center of Photography in New York. Eventually establishing her own studio in Manhattan, Saunders worked as a portrait and interpretative photographer in numerous markets; editorial (Forbes, Business Week, etc.) and corporate (Showtime Networks, New York Life, etc.)

Throughout, she pursued her interest in fine-art photography, that being her primary focus today. She concentrates on several portfolios: “Beyond the Platform” - a color, night series from subway platforms; “Four-Star Accommodations” - a photographic contemplation of homeless individuals; “Crush” - a series delving into privacy and human dynamics on mass transit; “Amalgam” - cameraless photography; “Urban Orchestra” - architectural elements in mostly urban environs and “Pioneers of Bushwick”, a photo/ text project featuring long-time residents of Bushwick, Brooklyn. She worked on her Pioneers photo-text project as part of an awarded Brooklyn Arts Council artist-residency program, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.

From Here to Where focuses on two series. The artist states that she has always been captivated by train/subway travel. As a city dweller, the subway is her primary mode of transportation. In “Beyond the Platform”, she investigates the close proximity between subway platforms and the surrounding community as it suggests a powerful theme of machinery vs. humanity.

In the hustle and bustle of subway travel, her attention is also drawn to what is quiet... still - - the homeless individuals seated or sleeping throughout the New York City transit system. Her curiosity and compassion is piqued by these quiet occupiers of uncomfortable space, who are largely unnoticed by the crowds swirling around them. She started to photograph them, their palpable alone-ness, within the context of their environment for “Four-Star Accommodations”. These images are artistically beautiful, but remind us how arduous life can sometimes be.
