About Jeanine Leech

Artist Statement

Photography for me is about capturing moments in time. Fleeting seconds of golden light, dramatic storms, flowing reflections in water, and quiet foggy mornings are all part of the reward of the outdoors. When the light is magical, I aim to express the beauty of the world around me with original and creative photographs. It is in these moments that artistic expression and attraction to light combine. My passion for the outdoors allows the viewer to experience nature and all its glory in new and meaningful ways. I use my unique vision to go beyond a documentary photograph to connect with nature and tell a dynamic visual story. My images explore the relationship between color and form with strong compositional design.
