Leah O’Connor

Leah O’Connor is an artist living in Los Angeles, California.

Through her travels, she captures the beauty of quiet, urban spaces and vivid, often naturally lit, subjects.

This shot was taken during a still moment at dawn in the hills just outside Los Angeles.

By mixing digital manipulation with black and white 35mm (film, scanned and printed) exposures, I created a look that emulates vintage science fiction movies.

To capture intimate moments within the recording process, I blend into the background. The process of becoming one with the scene thus makes me feel at one with the subjects and leaves them feeling more relaxed.
