ZOE LEONARD: PHOTOGRAPHS
by Urs Stahel
American photographer and activist, Zoe Leonard started her self-taught career in the eighties’ turmoil. Even though the time passes and the photographic medium advanced thanks to new technologies, she never abandoned analogue and the gelatine-silver print, thus preserving the depth and strength of her images.
Published in 2008, in conjunction with her first retrospective at Fotomuseum Winterthur, Photographs collects most of Leonard’s black and white shots, alongside essays written by editor Urs Stahel, Elisabeth Lebovici and Svetlana Alpers. The tactility of the texture and the simplicity in the representation reflect the truth of life, allowing the story of the subjects to flow through the pages.
