Karen Haberberg has spent twelve years as a professional photographer documenting stories of human resilience: the memories of a Holocaust survivor, the daily life of a developmentally disabled young adult working on a farm and more recently, kids with rare genetic conditions. Karen’s parents lost their first child, Rafi, at age three to Tay–Sachs disease. The memory of the child who died so young is never far from the family’s collective consciousness and inspired the work on this project.
