For the past fifteen years photographer Leslie Jean-Bart has been creating visual imagery based on verbal ideas, bringing fine art finesse to commercial applications. “In His Own Words” Leslie gives us a little insight on his vision.
LJB: These images are from the Coney Island beach section of the series “Between Reality and Imagination.” I was inspired to start this ongoing series three years ago when it occurred to me that we no longer seem to think about creating imaginative photographic imagery without utilizing Photoshop.
The series is created using a digital camera, but although approached mentally and physically in the conventional way, it has a totally modern look and feel. All of the images are done in a single shot in camera. Photoshop is used simply to process the raw files and to adjust contrast if necessary.
Although they are not abstract per se, I create these images to engage the imagination of the viewer, allowing them to bring their own interpretation into the mix.
