Dawn Sanborn

Dawn Sanborn is an artist who mainly works with photography but 

can be tempted to try just about anything. By examining the 

ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Sanborn tries to 

develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on 

subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer 

to make new personal associations.  In her variety of works, Sanborn 

likes the viewer to feel the story rather than it being told to them by 

the piece itself. Working in many different genres in photography 

over the last 20 years, she has developed a style that encapsulates 

emotion, life, reality, as well as a dream. 

 

Dawn Sanborn currently lives in Rochester, is photography director, 

food columnist and photographer for Rochester Women Magazine, 

and is an avid animal lover owning sometimes as many as 75 pets on 

her farm over the years. Now open in Pine Island, she owns TELLERS 

– The Studio for Creation, Imagination, and Inspiration, offering 

workshops and classes on everything from Art to Yoga.
