About the Artist
Marissa Patrice Leitman is a California based photographer and artist. Her work is heavily based in the Bay Area, routed in the drag, queer, techno and rock scenes. She rarely shoots someone unless she knows their name, and views photographing as an opportunity to publicly fess up her attractions. For Leitman, photography is a game of Truth or Dare; encouraging one to get as close to The Truth as possible; or else you just see how much you can get away with. She graduated from California College of the Arts in 2017; she recently published a photography book, EVERYTHING HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY through Nighted with another coming out through D3I. Leitman also runs Hit Gallery in San Francisco.
