Ron Moultrie Saunders is a photographic artist who creates photograms: photographs that are made without the use of a camera. His work explores story and mythology as a gateway to talk about cultural history, family mythology, and personal identity. For his residency, Saunders will use materials to create alternative process prints that celebrate the stories, memories, and culture of San Francisco’s Black community.
Saunders holds a Master’s Degree in landscape architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a charter member of Minnesota Street Projects Artist Studio Program, and a recipient of two Individual Artist Grants from the San Francisco Arts Commission and a Kala Art Institute Fellowship. He has exhibited at the San Francisco International Airport, San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, Rena Bransten Gallery, and at the San Jose ICA and completed two public projects for BART in 2023.
Residency: June 2024 - September 2024
