Sabrina Nguyen grew up in Los Angeles with an affinity for film and media. Though she began her academic career in fine arts as a painter and sculptor, it became clear to her that she preferred art in motion and wanted to dive in a time based media. As a NYC-based filmmaker, Sabrina has been heavily influenced by the landscapes of the city as well as the contrast with its neighboring states. This encourages a diverse quality in her work that not only focuses on adolescence in the city, but as well as the history rooted within.
Her work primarily focuses on intimate portrayals of personal encounters and events that transpired, which is conveyed through her photography and writing as well.
