Sara Terry  

A former staff correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor and magazine freelance writer, Sara Terry made a mid-career transition into photojournalism and documentary photography in the late 1990's.

She has just finished her first documentary, supported by the Sundance Documentary Institute. Fambul Tok is the story of an unprecedented grass-roots program in post-conflict Sierra Leone. Her first long-term project about the aftermath of war, Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace, was published in September 2005. Her work has been widely exhibited, at such venues as the United Nations, the Museum of Photography in Antwerp, and the Moving Walls exhibition at the Open Society Institute in New York. Her photographs are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and in many private collections. In 2005, she received a prestigious Alicia Patterson Fellowship for her work in Bosnia. She is also the founder of The Aftermath Project, a nonprofit grant program which helps photographers cover the aftermath of conflict. She resides in Los Angeles and is currently working on her next long-term project, Forgiveness and Conflict: Lessons from Africa.
