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.
