Portrait photographer Sarah Dunn has given the world thousands of iconic images of some of the world's best-known actors. Now, after a severe traffic accident, Sarah needs our help to get the care she'll need to heal and resume her life's work.
Sarah was struck by a speeding car on the afternoon of April 3rd 2018 as she crossed a street near her home in Los Angeles. While the impact spared most of her major organs, she suffered serious brain trauma called Diffuse Axonal Injury. It will likely take years to heal. We don't yet know what specific challenges she may face in coordination, perception, balance, and other aspects of brain function. However, it is clear is that she faces a long, difficult fight and will need extensive specialized care to recover fully and return to making art.
From a young age, Sarah has lived to make portraits. By now, millions have seen unforgettable images and witnessed her genius with the medium of light. At the same time, Sarah's personal kindness and generosity have illuminated and enriched the lives of her family, friends, and many co-workers. Every day they saw her unassuming and loving personality, how she always thought of them first, made sure they were cared for and had what they needed. She never asked anything for herself.

Please make a generous contribution via GoFundMe to ensure that Sarah recovers as quickly and completely as possible. Her family and friends need her back, and although she can't say so herself, her deepest desire is to get back to them and back to making portraits.
