Sarah Reingewirtz has spent her life documenting the world around her with passion. With a camera, she tells the stories of marginalized communities and the people who live within them. Change, progress, help are the goals that motivate her with every frame she takes. With a degree in Journalism/Photojournalism and Anthropology from Cal State Long Beach, she began her career in newspapers at the Orange County Register and then went to the Central Valley’s Bakersfield Californian where she learned about oil, farming, ranching and poverty. Today she works in Los Angeles for Southern California News Group’s metro papers. She has won numerous awards and was nominated for a Pulitzer for documenting Dorothy Edwards who went from homelessness to turning her life around after being housed. Sarah loves to garden but also enjoys time in the desert which needs no gardening.
