Sarah L. Voisin

The seeds for Sarah Voisin's career in photography were planted early. At age 5, she remembers looking with fascination at the pictures of Diane Arbus. But it wasn't until college, while studying the Farm Security Administration photographers, that the idea of becoming a photographer herself finally took root. "I was writing about the FSA, and it struck me that photographs were a better way to tell stories," says Voisin. After graduating Hampshire College, she enrolled at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, an experience that led to a newspaper internship in El Salvador. She then moved to Washington to document the Salvadoran community with the guidance of an editor at National Geographic. She also began freelancing for The Post, winning a staff spot in 1999. "Working with photographers I looked up to during school has been a wonderful experience," she says. "The longer I spend here, the more I'll grow as a photographer."
