Leigh Lambert is a photographer born and currently residing in Melbourne, Australia. In 2017 he completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts, Honours, with a focus on photography. He also has experience over many years as a writer and musician, and now as a filmmaker. Leigh has been involved as an exhibitor and organiser of many group shows concurrently with his studies and he has been invited to write about his work for the Large Format Blog. He has previously been Vice-President of the Melbourne Silver Mine, a photography group devoted to the use of analogue process.
