Leigh Patterson is a freelance editor, writer, and creative director based in Austin, Texas. She is the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the biannual print journal synonym, which publishes original content in art, design, style, and photography, with each issue centering around a particular theme. Most of her personal work centers around words, images, and how they make sense together.

For B-Sides, Leigh presents an interesting addition to an on-going series focused on creatives and their smartphones — she is the first feature we’ve had to employ the “Square” format to her iPhone camera snaps. About her cellphone submission, she realized that “every photo I take is white”. She adds, “These images are from the last week or so, taken in Austin, Marfa, and Santa Fe”.
