About Zoe Leonard

Zoe Leonard is an American artist and photographer, based in New York City. A photographer since the mid-1980s, she has been well known since her work appeared in documenta IX in 1992. In 1995 she had an exhibition called Strange Fruit (for David), inspired by the 1992 death of her friend, artist David Wojnarowicz from AIDS, as well as a trip to India. In 1996 Zoe created the Fae Richards Archive, a collection of photographs of a fictional 1930s actress for Cheryl Dunye’s queer film The Watermelon Woman. In her art project Analogue, 1998 – 2007, Zoe addresses what has been lost photographing the failing storefronts at her own neighborhood, the Lower East Side of New York City. In 2008 she published the monograph Zoe Leonard – Photographs at a Fotomuseum Winterthur (Steidl Verlag).
