Today I would like to introduce you all to someone who is an amazing talent.
I first met Leah Johnston when she was 8 years old. We were both involved in a Young Company for musical theatre. Although now living in L.A., Leah studyed musical theatre at NYU, graduating with a B.F.A in Drama. Whilst she was in New York City she began experimenting with photography as a hobby while still working on advancing her acting career. Waiting for auditions to come up in the acting world can really eat you up if you don't have something to do in your downtime or as a hobby. She began creating self portraits based on a specific concepts or depicting her poetry.
Leah's photography is absolutely stunning with such amazing imagination and vision.
Here are some of my favorites.....
if you enjoy what you see and would like to find out what else Leah is up to you can check out the links below....she shares her inspiration for each photograph as well as a few behind-the-scenes/before and afters which are fascinating.
Leah's book 'Poetic Portraits' is available HERE
