One Picture Book #76.
Photographs by Leon Borensztein.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2012. 16 pp., 13 black & white illustrations and one original print, 5¾x7½".
Leon Borensztein's OPB # 76: Portraits ii gathers a series of thirteen stunning portraits of couples or family members. The same backdrop is used with all of the subjects in this series, but the frame usually expands to show the personal surroundings of each that takes a cue from Irving Penn's aesthetic style, yet adds an often quirky twist. Usually odd, the images in this publication are striking in their originality and reproduction quality. - from photo-eye's New Arrivals Newsletter
