About the Author

David Julian Leonard is an American photographer and filmmaker from Memphis where he was born in 1962.He brings a background in motion pictures to his work as a still photographer. As a grip and lighting technician in the 1990s, he worked on feature films and other projects (as David Leonard). He was fortunate to work with a remarkable streak of directors and cinematographers who came to Memphis for projects including Francis Coppola, Milos Forman, John Toll and Phillipe Rousselot.More recently he has been cinematographer, director and editor on documentaries often devoted to the rich music heritage of the region from his native Tennessee through Mississippi to New Orleans. 2014 he edited the concert film Big Star: Live In Memphis from footage that had been left in a cupboard for almost 20 years.In his pursuit of still photography he has been strongly encouraged by his friend and fellow Memphian William Eggleston who also has greatly influenced his understanding of art.Leonard's art photography has brought him more often to Europe, where he has exposed in England, Scotland, Portugal, Denmark and France. Some of his finest photographs have been created during travels to Arles and he and his wife Valentine, who is French, now try to find more time to spend in a second home they've found there in the historic Roquette neighborhood.
