Leon Mitchell

Lecturer / Photography Technician, Photo Media

Leon graduated from Whitecliffe College in 2006 with a BFA majoring in Photography.

Leon has been a lecturer and Photo Media Department technician at Whitecliffe since 2007. He currently lectures in the Year One Photo Media and Design Programs and the Year Two Photo Media Major.

Leon has participated in a number of group exhibitions in Auckland and a faculty exhibition at Montclair State University in New Jersey.

Leon’s main area of theoretical interest is centered around the production and consumption of images in the contemporary visual environment. In particular, the power of images and their creators to shape, direct and manipulate the way we perceive. By exploring the dynamics of the relationship between producer, image and consumer, Leon’s work suggests that we should take a step back and reconsider how we engage and interpret images.
