Leia Maminta Smith Photography
A photograph is both art and science to me since it can show the beauty in the details or document the essence of life or the significance of an event. I love to experiment with perspective and colors, and find subjects that may look ordinary and see them in a different light.
Science Project Photo Shoot
For my latest photo project, I had the opportunity to work with scientists at Seattle Biomed. I wanted to explore what scientists do outside of the laboratory and incorporate the images with the scientific data that they generate in lab. One of my favorite sessions was with Dr. Marion Avril, a malaria scientist. She loves doing craft with beads and she brought colorful bracelets that she made.
