Linda J. Hirsch, photographer, photojournalist, and psychologist, creates award-winning documentary and unique, mixed-media pieces. She began her photography career in her senior year of college and went on to launch a freelance career, open a commercial studio, and commence a lifelong exploration of the medium. Hirsch focuses her work upon human rights, and for over fourteen years, she has immersed herself in the unique culture of small Jewish communities in Cuba. Hirsch uses the camera to raise awareness of human rights issues as well as the essence of Cuban life. Through her art, she builds bridges of connection and inspires engagement through dialogue and multi-media exchanges. Her work has garnered numerous awards, grants, exhibits, and commissions.
