Leticia Valdez is a New York City-based fashion and portrait photographer; her photographic style is painterly, nostalgic, dark, and quiet. She draws inspiration from art history, pictorialism, religion, and solitude. She is moved by dull and dim color palettes; all that is quiet and calm.
Leticia holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Fashion Institute of Technology and a Master of Arts in Costume Studies, from Steinhardt, New York University.
My portraiture work features quiet, calm, blue vignettes of illusory subjects imbued in blurred scenes, amid floral motifs, and soft color palettes and garments. Each image exists in a world of its own and it is carefully crafted and stylized with only beauty in mind, devoid of a story. My work allows me to explore, carve and portray fantasy- Its only purpose is to take the viewer on a voyage of play.
