It takes extraordinary vision and creativity to look at everyday objects and find the inherent magnificence previously unrecognized. For Leighton, finding the beauty in details is the focus of his exceptional photography. His celebrated works in nudes draw the viewer in to take a closer look at his unique perspective by stepping outside of the confines of the frame, looking beyond the corporeal to see the beauty and wonder of the body’s landscape.
In recent work, Leighton moved from exploring the anatomy of the human form to the anatomy of flowers, drawing distinct parallels as he captured the macro details of nature’s most extraordinary shapes.
Leighton has been featured on ABC Eyewitness News, Fox News, CNN and 1010 WINS Radio. His award-winning photographs appeared regularly on the HBO series, Sex and the City and have been the subject of articles in The New York Times Sunday Styles, New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Domino, Vitals Woman, More; and, internationally in Dutch and both the British and Greek editions of Grazia magazine.
