Description

Henry (Heinrich) Michael Sarason was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1896 and immigrated to the U.S. in 1925 after studying and getting his doctorate in dermatology. He became a naturalized citizen in February of 1926. He became fascinated by photography and began working. In the late 1940s did a series of experimental Manhattan portraits, reflected off of buildings and using multiple exposures.

Dr. Henry Sarason exhibited his photographs in December of 1953 at the New School for Social Research in New York, the first one-man show by an outside exhibitor. A New York Times review from December 13, 1953 notes:

"A one-man show by Dr. Henry Sarason, a pictorialist who has 'Crashed' the Museum of Modern Art photography collection, opened last week at the New School for Social Research, 66 West Twelfth Street where it will hang through December 18th..."

His work was also included in the 1958-59 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art titled "Photographs from the Museum Collection".
