The Eccles Library January 2019 art exhibit features the recent works of Steven Leitch.
The works exhibited are selections from recent photographic sojourns throughout the states of Utah, California, Hawaii, and other locals visited. The images were captured using a Nikon D800 single-lens reflex (SLR) digital camera with an assortment of fixed-focal length lenses, and minimal post-processing (from RAW format to final screen/print).
“I spent most of my formative years in the photography world. I worked as a photographer for 37 years at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and for 36 years, I served in the US Army Reserve as a photojournalist and writer. I was recently released as a service missionary photographer for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I enjoy poetry, and I have been writing script (pen and ink) throughout my life. I am a member of the Utah State Poetry Society, and I serve as president of the Valley Winds Chapter, the Salt Lake City chapter of the Society.
I love being able to capture a moment or thought in time and preserve it for others to witness along with me, the beauty and uniqueness of this world of ours. Photography and poetry, through image and script, allows me to do both; and why I love it so.”
