Sara Rubinstein is director and photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She graduated from Carleton College in 1998 with a degree in Biology and a minor in German. She has been directing and shooting campaigns for a diverse client roster for more than 22 years. When not on a commercial set, you will find Sara with a manual Leica rangefinder, still creating images for her personal works series. Sara’s pictures evoke a sense of stepping into dreams and hopes, each choice of landscape riding the line between the mundane and the inspirational.

Her love for travel and the road are evident throughout select frames, both in visual and metaphorical terms. Her images symbolize a simple love for beauty, a calling back to life and exploration beyond the confines of work for commerce. The locations are intentionally vague, helping us tap into a universal thirst for something, somewhere, beyond.
