"Are we ever prepared to comprehend the potential ramifications and receptions of what we make and leave behind? Global warming, rampant wildfires and deforestation, and widespread greed suggest not. I don't share the culture or the religion underpinning the myths of Angkor Thom, but I share without question, their sense of the apocalyptic, the enormity of the cosmos. It is back in my studio that I begin to make sense of it all, because for me, photography is not just a method of recording the world, but a tool for examining and revealing its mysteries."

Sandi Haber Fifield was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1956. She received her MFA in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1981 and soon thereafter received a New York State Creative Artists Program Grant. Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including The Art Institute of Chicago; The DeCordova Museum; The Museum of Modern Art; The National Museum of American Art; The Oakland Museum; The Southeast Museum of Photography and The St. Louis Museum.

Additionally, in 2009 Charta published Haber Fifield's monograph of grids and multiple image installations, Walking through the World and in 2011 her book of photographs made on small farms, Between Planting and Picking was published (Charta). Haber Fifield's work has also appeared in Fabrications by Anne Hoy; Picturing California by Therese Heyman; and Defining Eye: Women Photographers of the 20th Century and The Photography of Invention by Merry Foresta.
