Leslie Gleim’s vision for her body of work was to capture the metaphors that are held within the complex simplicity of her subjects. Each image has been stripped to the raw element of black and white, causing the mind’s eye to read the unique nuances of each subject. The dance between light, shape and form is used to capture an intrinsic understanding of the subject as well as the photographer’s intentional metaphoric vision for her images which dances along the edge of simplicity.
