Sara Aliaga Ticona, a photographer and visual storyteller, is based in La Paz, Bolivia. Her work focuses on telling stories focused on cultural identity and gender, and how these two elements are related with the landscapes where they reside — developing these elements as symbolic and documentary instruments.

She is a National Geographic Explorer, winner of the Women Photograph Workshop, winner of a scholarship for RISC training, and was part of the CONTACT festival organized by Photographers Without Borders (Canada). She has worked in multiple media organizations in Bolivia and has been published in The New York Times, The Guardian, POY Latam magazine, Foto-Féminas, the University of Bern's research magazines, Neue Zürcher Zeitung (Switzerland), Reuters and Kulturaustausch (Germany).
