Leasha Overturf explores childhood, teenage relationships, and her immediate family in her work. In addition to her documentary and portrait projects, Leasha has a highly developed interest in the self-portrait and considers all of her images to be self-portraits in one manner or another. Her fearlessness, honesty and vulnerability are clearly evident in her work.
Leasha's work is collected both nationally and internationally, and has been featured in shows such as The Chicago Project with the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.
In addition to her own photography projects Leasha Overturf has worked with the photographer Paul Elledge in all aspects of photographic productions since 1993. The two of them co-teach at the esteemed The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops as well as The Toscana Photographic Workshops in Italy.
