Don Saban, a native of Phoenix Arizona, received his formal training at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, and simultaneously
was a private student and studied art and photography as protege of professor William A. Rohrbach, University of California Santa Barbara, who studied with Minor
White at Berkeley in the early 50’s.
Saban stayed on in Santa Barbara after finishing his studies and was a member of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Photography Committee. During his tenure in
Santa Barbara, he was one of the first photographers to be in Art Life magazine and was the first photographer to do the cover.
After coming to Los Angeles, he taught fashion photography at Otis/Parsons and continued his photographic work which was published in numerous magazines.
After 10 years in Los Angeles, Saban accepted the position of Principal Photographer at the University of California Santa Barbara. During that period, he
was commissioned by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art to go to Budapest and do photographs for the book Standing in the Tempest: Painters of the Hungarian Avant-Garde.
Saban has recently been published in Male Nude Now (Universe press) by David Leddick, and Deep Blue (Blue Books) Australia..
Saban currently has his studio in Los Angeles, devoting his time exclusively to photography, and working on his upcoming book. His work is in private as well as
institutional collections world wide.
