Sant is a member of the Water in the West project—a large-scale photographic collaboration addressing water issues in the western United States. The Project was founded in 1989 to create contemporary photographs and to collect historical images on a wide range of topics related to the use and abuse of water in the American West. Her work is represented in museum collections throughout the United States.
