Sarah Rice is a freelance photographer based in San Francisco, California and a friend of Ed’s. As described by Ariel Zambelich, Sarah’s “documentary work is both beautiful and powerful, demonstrating her passion for social good and her empathy for people from all walks of life.” Working for a variety of newspapers and non-profit organizations, Sarah’s work aims at helping people.

But this time it’s Sarah who needs our help. This talented photographer has recently undergone brain surgery, for the second time, to remove a tumor that she wryly named Pepe. In efforts to raise money to aid Sarah in recovery and medical bills, the San Francisco Chronicle will be holding an event on Saturday, April 6th called Reviews for Rice at the Gallery Carte Blanche in San Francisco. This event will offer the opportunity to have your work critiqued by photo editors from the Chronicle as well as Wired.com, Mother Jones, and Rayko Photo Center. In addition there will also be a print auction of 16×20 prints from award winning photographers, and photo gear, books, and services for auction, as well. 100% of the proceeds will be benefitting the Pepe Eradication Fund.

Come out and get your portfolio reviewed, participate in auctions, and support a really good cause. Register for a review session or general admission here!
