The Hungry Girls’ photographer, Leah Holscher, recently snuck back into the country after three years of life in Europe. There she based herself in England and The Netherlands and travelled just about everywhere she could – Turkey, Portugal, the Ukraine, Africa – taking pictures, pictures, more pictures.
As well as being a food photographer, Leah is a passionate travel photographer with a unique eye for windows, doorways and openings onto hidden worlds, and the beauty to be found in everyday objects. Many of her pictures have a playful sense of irony or quirkiness – an old telephone hung above the bed in a hotel room; a hand-sewn cover in patterned fabric drawn over a car in dusty Mali.
Leah worked at architecture practices in London and Rotterdam, The Netherlands, but photography was really what the trip was all about. In Rotterdam Leah had an exhibition at De Aanschouw and also contributed photos to a piece about the city’s unlikely image of itself as a tropical hideaway – strange but true. Below are highlights of Leah’s inspiring travels.
