Artists & Designers
Born in Brooklyn, photographer Gail Leboff began her studies at the School of Visual Arts and went on to receive her BA and MA in Photography and Studio Art from NYU. The recipient of the prestigious Louis Tiffany Biennial Award, she lives and works in New York City and Vermont, the latter the setting of her “Atmosphere” works. “Atmosphere was photographed in Vermont during extreme weather shifts. I waited, in various locations, for moments when the clouds would begin to lift from the horizon, and then I would begin. I focused on the sky, thus transforming the landscape below into dark shadows and rendering the images with a monochromatic blue mood. I hope by doing this to create unsettling but mesmerizing images that would reflect our fragile but beautiful environment.” Leboff joined RALPH PUCCI in 1999.
