“I try to inspire people to get away from the everyday, continuously-connected world… to connect to something permanent and beautiful in the outdoors,” says the artist. Free of artificial means or extreme digital enhancements, Leach’s stunning Northern Lights imagery captures nature’s magnificent display as curtains of luminescent silk dance against star-filled nights.

The photographs’ compositions and framing eloquently portray the breathtaking spectacle as day winks into night. Leach employs lens and light with alacrity and skill, revealing pristine dawns and fiery sunsets over glassy meres. The shades and hues of the wondrous palette of creation is portrayed with reverence and truth. Each work reveals what nature often conceals in fleeting moments. Perseverance is rewarded. The essence and nuance of each image bestows an almost dreamlike quality on what is being photographed. Each work is revelatory and presented with the talent and creativity of an auteur.
