Leigh Preston ‘Six Themes’

Leigh tends to work in themes, making images as a series and he says that he relies heavily on atmosphere, dramatic lighting and strong storylines to help create is own style. A lot of his images are of buildings and landscapes that are well past their sell-by date. He tends to work in monochrome, using both digital and darkroom processes depending on what he is looking for in the final print.

Leigh belongs to the ARENA group of photographers and is a member of the London Salon, he has published two books ‘Shadows of Change’ and ‘Five Essays’ and his work has been exhibited in London, Dublin, Birmingham, Reading, Manchester, Gloucester and Belfast. He holds two RPS Fellowships and is a lecturer for Permajet.
