Gail LeBoff

In my work I am concerned with gesture, form, and simplicity. Previously, I worked on large scale solarized birds and flowers. These studio images were shot at the seashore, and then manipulated in the darkroom to be expressive gestures of nature. I work with spinning forms and suspended objects. I use complicated printing and techniques to create simple, beautiful images that speak to the fragility and mysteries of life.
