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 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 and director of The Aftermath Project, a nonprofit grant program that helps photographers cover the aftermath of conflict. In 2011, her first documentary film, Fambul Tok, premiered at the prestigious SXSW Film Festival and has gone on to screen in more than forty festivals around the world. Terry resides in Los Angeles and is currently working on her next long-term project, Forgiveness and Conflict: Lessons from Africa.
