Leslie is an emerging artist in the field of fine and digital art photography living in Holland, Michigan. Her work is typically bold, colorful and contemporary, often with a minimal presentation. She enjoys capturing light and detail seen only through the eye of the lens and take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. There is no mission or a message, just a love of taking pictures and editing them in an artistic way.
She quotes Saul Leiter who says: “…I don’t have a philosophy. I have a camera. I look into the camera and take pictures. My photographs are the tiniest part of what I see that could be photographed. They are fragments of endless possibilities….” – You can see more of her work on her website: https://www.leslievictor.com/
