Leon 2016
Photography by Lisa Elijah

Selected photos of Leon from 2008 to 2015, by photographer Lisa Elijah. The display itself has nine images of Leon.

Since 2008, Shoreline photographer Lisa Elijah has been taking portraits of local children at regular intervals as they progress through their formative years.

The results, on display at Shoreline City Hall Art Gallery, document individuals in a process of transformation that captures the full range of magic and wonder as children emerge into young adults.

Aspects of identity, gender, temporality, and self-expression are all evident in the series of portraits.

“Ten to Eighteen: a Photo Essay” will open Wednesday, May 25, 2016, with a public reception featuring the artist and collaborating families, from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm on 4th floor City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133.

Twenty-one subjects are in the show, with nine photo portraits of each one.

Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm through Friday, August 5, 2016. 

Tours by arrangement with David Francis, Public Art Coordinator, 206-801-2661.
