Leona Strassberg Steiner

Photographer and artist, Leona Strassberg Steiner’s work reflects her living in two very distinct and different landscapes. Having lived half her life in Israel and the other in the United States, she uses this dichotomy to her advantage, as a way to acquaint her viewer with two very different cultures. Leona’s first art career was as a professional modern dancer, turning to photography while documenting her student’s performances. Since then, the camera has been her way of experimenting, deconstructing and reconstructing ideas, feelings and political leanings. Recently she opened Alley Arts, an after school visual arts program in the downtown Jersey City neighborhood. Her experiences from residing in Israel and the United States are what propel her photographic and printing projects, which look at memories, displacement, transitions, and land.
