Jonathan Leder Steams Up Our Screen – Retro Style

Jonathan Leder was born and raised in New York City during the 1970's. He started his career by assisting superstar photographer Steven Klein. As the digital camera revolutionized the photography world, Jonathan remained faithful to his 35mm and old-school Polaroid (remember those?). With a sharp eye and a distinct indie style, Jonathan is able to capture these absolutely amazing, dreamy shots. “I don't like when girls are too perfect. I like a girl with character, who has something real about her. I generally prefer to work with American whenever possible, only because I understand their culture and background more, and I think this is important. I also don't like it when the pictures become too much about lighting or the clothes” -Jonathan Leder
