18"x20" Darkroom print from a 35mm negative shot with a Nikon. From a series "Palm Springs". Edition of 8
Brian Leatart was born in Los Angeles and began shooting street and landscape photography at a very young age. By 18, he had amassed a portfolio of black-and-white landscape photographs and continued his art education in photography first at Cal State Northridge in their Fine Art department, moving on to photography and film at Art Center College of Design for four years where he graduated with a Fine Arts degree.
"From my first assignment, I knew that photography would be my life’s passion."
Brian never stopped exploring conceptually-driven photography on its own and has devoted the last 10 years to building a body of work split between traditional film images of landscapes and digital composites of Found Objects and portraits incorporating objects. He has shown in galleries in Los Angeles, Palm Springs and on a monthly basis in Joshua Tree, California.
He maintains studios in Hollywood and Joshua Tree.
