You'll find me today at the online arts magazine Escape Into Life, where I've posted my latest Artist Watch column showcasing the gorgeous photography of Tina Leto.

Born and raised in Chicago, Leto uses a dual lens flatbed scanner as a camera to "photograph" her botanicals, which she then prints on archival papers in limited editions of five to 50. She sometimes prints her images as large as eight feet. Her archival pigment prints are available for purchase.

Leto's photographic projects include a series on Romania.

You'll find eight images of Leto's botanicals in my Artist Watch post, as well as Leto's Artist Statement, a Note on Process, and a brief biography.
