Leon Borensztein - "Sharon"

Photographer Leon Borensztein began his most personal project thirty years ago when his daughter was born: “Throughout my artistic career I have been driven by the need to give voice to the unheard and unseen. This desire became a personal passion when my daughter Sharon was born. Just after her birth I felt there was something wrong, and slowly we learned that she was born with disabilities. I started photographing my daughter before she was born and I have never stopped.”

Sharon offers a unique opportunity to increase awareness about disability and challenges of single parenthood.

Borensztein is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose areas of focus are in psychological portraiture and documentary. Throughout his artistic career he has been driven by the need to give voice to the unheard and unseen.  His previous books include: Metamorphosis, One is Adam, One is Superman and American Portraits are visual documentation of salient moments in their lives.He has worked for leading magazines including extensive work for The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Vogue, Fortune, among others. His work appeared in Life  and Harpers. He received MFA with honors from SF Art Institute, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship and his work is in the collections of Biblioteque Nationale Paris, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, San Francisco MOMA, Chicago Art Institute, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and others.
