Leah Dyjak

Visual Artist
United States

Leah is an interdisciplinary, lens-based artist splitting her time between New York and Massachusetts. She received her MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Her site-specific work combines performance, labor, film, and photography to explore how generations of human use affect the ecologies of place. Her images and installations often push the edges of the photographic frame upending tradition and raising questions about trusted space. Leah applies the logic of archaeology against the chaos of climate change to explore our corporal connection to water. Her work plays with our perceptions of perceived boundaries and charts matter in flux. Leah is an Assistant Professor of Video and Photography at Winthrop University. She is represented by the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
