A Holocaust survivor who lives in Stamford strives to find beauty in the world behind the lens of her camera.
Rozana Antanova, 81, was just a baby when her mother escaped Moscow in 1943.
"This railroad had one small fork…and my mother decided to go with me while Germany was still advancing,” she says.
The railroad split was the path to survival for them as her other Jewish relatives died in the Holocaust.
Antanova’s survival put her on a path to find her passion.
She eventually became a shoe designer when she came to America with her family.
Now she says her photography highlights "places in which people go everyday but maybe don't see beauty."
Her artwork is the light for both her and her husband.
