Sarah S. Bones saved for her first 35mm camera at age 13, in 1969. She was soon hitchhiking into Philadelphia where she would photograph the lives and circumstances of people living on the street. As a professional photographer, her passion and courage for documenting people in need continued and has carried her across Africa, south east Asia, Guatemala, Cuba, India, in addition to local prisons and homeless shelters.

Assignments for non-government organizations gives Sarah the opportunity to use her camera and vision to tell the stories of men, women, and children around the world who are voiceless and too often ignored by the popular media. In 2006 an assignment for CARE USA took her deep into Somalia and in 2007 she traveled throughout the post conflict country Sierra Leone with The Global Action Foundation. In July of 2008 she worked in Tanzania for Nurturing Mind’s education project and onto Rwanda to do a story for the 15-year genocide anniversary.
