To some, a career is not about making money, but about making a difference in the lives of others.

Freelance photographer Sarah Isaacs from the CBD is living proof of this – she dedicates her work to assist two non-profit organisations (NPOs) working with vulnerable girls.

Sarah and fellow photographer, Anna Lusty, are currently exhibiting their work at Cameraland in the CBD in an exhibition entitled “Female Empowerment”.

The two women photographed the work done by Girl Pride in Masiphumelele and Girl Impact in Khayelitsha.

The exhibition officially opened on Wednesday 14 August and has seen patrons walking in and admiring their photographs.

Sarah says the two NPOs are very close to her heart as they represent what she stands for – the empowerment of women. The NPOs work with underprivileged girls, equipping them with life skills and independence.

The exhibition portrays the lives of these young girls – aged between eight and 19.

She says they are wonderful individuals, brimming with confidence and hope.

“Despite their circumstances they have the courage to seek help and work towards becoming better people,” Sarah says.

She hopes the public will support and help the two NPOs in their quest to uplift women.

Describing her work and love for photography, Sarah says it gives her fulfilment, knowing that she is visually narrating stories of women in today’s society. She says a photo speaks “a million words”.V For more information about Sarah Isaacs’ work, visit
