*Leanne Surfleet* is a UK-based freelance fine art film photographer whose body of work is largely dedicated to self-portraits. Her arsenal includes numerous analogue cameras, expired film, and Polaroid, and through photography she “explores the subject of the self” and other themes like light and loneliness. Her photographs have been put up in group exhibitions both in London and abroad, and featured in various online publications. In 2012, she was in the Top 100 shortlist of the Google Photography Prize. More, Surfleet is the Photography Editor of _No Culture Icons_.
Shooting both in color and black and white, Surfleet’s self-portraits are each well-composed and, save for a few, don’t show her whole face. Perhaps it’s the combination of light and her cameras loaded with her film of choice that gives her photographs an ethereal, mysterious air about them.
I love to portray dreaming states within my photographs, giving the sense of memory and a familiarity that the viewer can (hopefully) relate to in many different ways. – Leanne Surfleet
