Venue: Banko Gallery

Leah Macdonald’s work is a dialogue between her imagination, her curiosity, her imperfections and her desires. She creates layered pieces that marry photography with painting and drawing. Through a focus on photographs of women and flowers, she expresses the tales of womanhood, sharing stories through form, color and texture. The Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony takes place First Friday, Nov. 3, 6-9 p.m.

Leah MacDonald grew up in Philadelphia with a life rich with art and a diverse source of cultural experiences. She discovered photography while attending the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr and took her first college course at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She thought she would become a photojournalist; however, plans change and as an artist she has always been very experimental.

Leah moved to California and received her Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees in Photography and also began a career as a teacher and mixed media artist. About 10 years ago she returned to Philadelphia to focus on her career. She teaches mixed media workshops from her studio and on location as well. She is a commercial photographer and owner of Jewellea Photography, specializing in weddings and boudoir photography. She is also the owner of Bliss Books, a high end, hand-made album and book-making company.
