Isa Leshko at John Cleary Gallery

Disenchantment


One of our photographers, Isa Leshko, has been receiving a myriad of press, reviews, and praise. Her series "Thrills and Chills" is delighting the public and critics alike with her darkly printed silver gelatin images of scenes from amusement parks, which are taken with a Holga. In this series Leshko uses her camera to examine her own fears and depict the range of emotions people experience visiting amusements parks and seeking out adrenaline pumping rides.

Isa was featured in the March issue of Fraction Magazine and was reviewed by Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Feeney in the April 30, 2010 edition of the Boston Globe. In the blogging world, Isa and her work have been included on NPR, Lenscratch, and Center for Fine Art Photography's Perspectives blogs.

Over the past several months Isa has been honored in various ways.  She has been accepted to the esteemed Review Santa Fe as well as Project 5 Portfolio Review.  Her work has been featured in RayKo Photo Center's International Plastic Camera Show, accepted into Center for Fine Art Photography's Portfolio Showcase Volume 4 online exhibition and book, nominated for the second year in a row for a Black and White Spider Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fine Art in the professional category, and she received honorable mention in the 2010 Houston Center for Photography Juried Fellowship Competition for her Elderly Animals project.

Recently Isa's work was on exhibit at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, from April 8 - May 9, 2010 and five of her prints are now in the collection of the Boston Public Library.  Isa's work will be featured in our upcoming show Found, which will open July 10th this summer.
