Leon Borensztein’s American Portraits brings together ten years of portaits by the photographer. Visiting his subjects at home, Borensztein would set up a generic backdrop behind his sitters and then take a step back to reveal a glimpse into their personal spaces. The resulting collection of photographs is a playful and touching look into the lives of the everyday Americans he encountered.
