With the upcoming opening of "Milk & Oysters", our photo group show at Ed.Varie next week, we'd like to present photographer Leigh Patterson. Leigh is also a writer, a creative director and the co-editor of Synonym Journal

On her composed photography, Leigh says it evolves around "the idea of considering everything not as one piece, but as part of something bigger" as she likes to put things into perspective.

She contributed her everyday iPhone photos to The Digest. She also started the series "5 Things," where artists comment on objects in their studio, as well as Likes and Dislikes, where "an exercise, while gratuitous, is rooted in ideas of pattern, construction, specificity, and memory." 

Whats up next for Leigh? "I am working on a new personal project with my friend Alexa Hotz. It takes an instructional approach to offering 'advice' to modern women."

Leigh's print, "breezy / texture" is three different photos displayed in a collage. "It's braids on my friend Breezy, and then two shots of the texture of marble." The print is limited edition (of 2), previously unseen, and will be available for sale at both Ed.Varie and in our online shop.
