Working on the edge of the photographic medium, Leslie Field explores shadow, form, and scale in her imagery. She uses alternative processes, various film and papers, sculptural elements, and collage, considering herself an artist who makes photographs, rather than a photographer. Carefully chosen images and chemical reactions create tangible and symbolic layers in her work. Each layer invites discovery of deeper meanings and enigmatic qualities in that which is often overlooked or unseen.

Works by Leslie Field are in numerous private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
