David Leaser

Exhibition date: 
Creative Connotations: 2nd - 27th August 2017

David Leaser was born in 1962 and grew up on a horse farm outside Hershey, Pennsylvania. He started taking pictures with a Polaroid Swinger on a first grade field trip, and he has been taking photographs ever since. The horse business helped him perfect his craft. The family raised and showed Arabian horses around the country, winning championships at the regional and national level. To earn money during summers, Leaser photographed horses for clients at horse shows. With his passion for still-lifes of botanical subjects, Leaser feels a kinship with botanical artists like Ambrosius Bosschaert and Rachel Ruysch. “My art is a way for me to capture the beauty of nature and bring it indoors to enjoy forever. Many of the subjects in my work have a lifespan of a day or two, so this is my way to immortalize these beautiful things.”
