Portland Art Museum Photography Council’s
Brown Bag Lunch Talk Series
Leslie Hickey was recently a fellow at The Civita Institute in Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy. Born in Portland in 1983, she first went to Italy at 20, and has since returned four times with an additional trip planned for May 2018. She will speak about how her photographic approach is shaped by the people, places, and books she encounters in Italy and further describe the strange situations, and surprises, that can occur when one has a tenuous grasp on the language and culture of a place.
Leslie is a founding member of Small Talk Collective based in Portland and also SCALENO, an international collective with members residing in Portland, Lima, and Berlin. Outside of film photography, she is also the proprietor of Hoarfrost Press, an occasional letterpress operation.
