When we spoke to Leslie Burns at her home in Georgia last week, she was preparing for an afternoon in the studio.  “For me that means experimentation with models in front of the camera and with processes in the darkroom.”  Both forms of experimentation have yielded fascinating results for those who have visited her website, www.missleslieburns.com or who have had the privilege to see her work in person.  In her writings and her work the issue of authenticity is one she returns to repeatedly, “The opportunity presented by handcrafting a photograph allows me to reveal the truth of the subject, while at the same time altering the viewer’s notion of truth.”
