Description

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.

This fine art book offers a unique opportunity to increase awareness about disability and challenges of single parenthood.
