Leslie Fernández de León

Es fotografa profesional. El recorrido artístico de Leslie Fernández de León es el “melting pot” de las experiencias forjadas en tres continentes que influyeron en su expresión y visión artística.

Su formación artística comenzó en la Universidad APEC de Santo Domingo, donde se licenció en publicidad. El proceso de formación continuó en EEUU, donde lo amplió mediante el curso de introducción a la fotografía en el Miami Dade Comunity College.

Desde Miami, la inquietud por conocer nuevas formas y expresiones artísticas la llevó a cruzar el Atlántico, hasta Barcelona donde obtuvo el título de Estudis de la Imatge i el Diseny – IDEP.

Actualmente, Leslie Fernández de León vive y trabaja en Barcelona, y su especial foco de interés reside en la fotografía de arte y moda.
