— Crista Leonard is a portrait, documentary, fashion and still-life photographer based between Barcelona and New York. As a young girl caught in motion between France, Switzerland and Andorra – a principality in the Pyrenees Mountains – Crista developed a deep sense of people and place, and a curiosity for the stories behind significant objects and unspoken moments. She honed her style – neoclassical, serene and suggestive – at London’s Goldsmiths University and has applied it to both her commercial and personal work for over a decade, most notably in a long-term documentary project exploring the idiosyncratic characters of maritime town Biarritz. In 2015 Crista launched luxury interiors magazine Philistine with set decorator and long-time collaborator David de Quevedo – a premium platform for her and her peers to archive visual inspirations and experiment with new aesthetics. She is currently represented by Artlist and available for commission.
