I create still life photographs of blown out tires that I find along the highway of my hometown in Las Vegas, Nevada. I aim to make pictures of tires in a fresh and engaging manner that encourages people to experience an ordinary object from a new perspective. The tires I photograph bear a striking resemblance to human gesture, body language, and organic matter, and are reminiscent of artistic sculpture.
AUTHOR: Leon Syfrit (United States)
I am a photographer who works in the Greater Las Vegas, NV area. My business focuses on portraiture, still life, and event photography. I am also interested in alternative and historic photographic processes and works at restoring and preserving vintage photographs and negatives. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is included in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia History Museum, The Free Library of Pennsylvania, and Darkroom Gallery in Vermont. I hold a BFA in photography from University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Prior to moving to Las Vegas, I taught photography at Delaware College of Art and Design in Wilmington Delaware.
