LeighAnn Edmonds is a freelance documentary photographer in Birmingham, Alabama. Her work focuses on the rural regions of the American South, the people, their culture and the land that has often passed down through generations.
Her conviction to break away from mainstream photography led to her retirement as a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, allowing her to focus on her personal work and photography projects.
She primarily shoots 35mm black & white film with a 1955 vintage NIKON S2 rangefinder and her first camera, a Nikon N80 SLR.
LeighAnn penned an article for Street Photography Magazine about her return to film which will be published in the magazine on March 19, 2023. In addition she will be the featured photographer in the May 2023 issue of SPM. Be sure to read that article to learn more about LeighAnn and her work.
