Description

Born in California, Leon has been shooting fashion and beauty from his 1400sq/ft studio in Paris, France, since 1999. Traveling the world over, shooting in Italy, Germany, Spain, England, Japan, and China, he has recently relocated his studio back home in the good old USA.

Leon continues to travel, shooting editorials for internationally reknowned magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Tatler, Marie Claire, and Elle, as well as nine other British, French, Swiss, Chinese, and Japanese magazines.

For pleasure, he has produced an extensive collection of art photos which have been exhibited in galleries across the globe, with shows in California, New York, Chicago, Japan, China, France, and Spain.

Leon is truly making his mark on the world. He hopes his vision of beauty, peace, prosperity, and art can inspire others to see their own beauty and their fantastic connection we all have with the physical and spiritual world.

Artist statement

Artist Statement: Leon Saperstein

I was born in Oakland, California, but left my heart in Paris, France (not San Francisco). Paris changed my life and I started my photography career by shooting Moulin Rouge dancers in my little 250 sq’ studio in the Montmartre art district of Paris in 1998. Some say that sounds very Toulouse Lautrec, but my work is nothing similar, and I quickly upgraded to a 1400sq’ photo studio shooting fashion photography for the international editions of Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Tatler, Marie Claire, L’officiel and Elle magazines.

I was inspired by the Polaroid “light-painting” photography of Paolo Roversi (a famous fashion photographer whom I had the chance to meet in Paris) and I started shooting light-painting myself... on film! I maybe the only one in the world who ever did, since it’s SUPER difficult, but I enjoyed the challenge.

I soon developed my proper style and started producing an extensive collection of art photos which have since been exhibited in galleries across the globe, with shows in California, New York, Chicago, Japan, China, France, and Spain.

Local shows

I'm everywhere... and nowhere... and now here.
