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 1990s. Her long-term project about the aftermath of war in Bosnia - Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace - was published in September 2005 by Channel Photographics. 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. 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.
Sara is the founder of The Aftermath Project, a non-profit grant program which helps photographers cover the aftermath of conflict. Based on the conviction that “War is only half the story,” the Aftermath Project seeks to affect media and public understanding of the true cost of war and the real price of peace through its grant program, exhibitions, publications and educational outreach.
