Announcement   For a dozen years or more I have shot exclusively on vintage cameras on black and white Ilford film. For me, photography is a moment captured in time. A story, stood still. And I am fascinated by the story in everything. In late June I took the leap and broke digital ground.

On ETSY you will discover black and white fiber prints that I have shot in natural light. Many of these images were shot in the magical confines of New York City, the Hudson Valley and Costa Rica. These images are also represented in a series of postcards, (with the poem, Presence), a forthcoming line of Buttons (Yes, Think Eighties) T-shirts and Handbags.

Consider ETSY a practical element in a cultural revolution. The fun part is that you can browse and shop and have these items delivered to your door. With no wine stains. Pay in your pajamas.

ARTIST STATEMENT
SUMMER 2011

DB LEONARD is a Singer and Parlor Guitar Player and a Teller of Tall Tales. He creates atmospheric narratives embedded with bits of electronica and bites of a full band. His work has been classified as ‘music noir’- meaning heavy in mood and imagery, with an emphasis on the spaces in between.

With songs placed on The Hills (MTV), scores for independent films and collaborations with electronic musicians, Leonard fuses the elements of the Story with the Song in expanding territory. Recently featured on NPR’s ‘Everyday Heroes’ for his eccentric output, he connects his songwriting with a passion for black and white photography.
“I’m sort of obsessed with the landscape of a single moment.”

A published poet, these moments shine all over WHEN YOU COME AROUND, Leonard’s latest, the follow up to 2009 INFINITY SESSIONS, recognized by the Hudson Valley’s The Daily Freeman as one of the top 10 regional albums of 2009.

His restless spirit started in Boston on heavy doses of Morphine [the alt-rock band] but it was in New York City where he experienced his coming of age. It started out in the subways and continued on through the stages, playing some of the city’s best-loved music rooms for nearly a decade. The Living Room, Mercury Lounge, Village Underground, CBGB’s (rip).

It was in the Hudson Valley where Leonard put together the hidden gems of a decade of recordings and images. Now he’s emerging from the woods. There’s a merging of passions as he sets the stage to perform his songs to moving still shots of all original black and white images.

DB was awesome from start to finish. i am BEYOND happy with the matting of this print. I wasn't sure whether I should just matte my image myself, but opted for letting DB. Knowing his print, he was able to really choose something that would let the print stand out. He chose a brushed gold frame (something i never would have chosen) and it looks incredible with the black and white print. thanks for putting on the perfect finishing touches, DB! - jenn
