Leeann LaCarbonara

“My friend created my Instagram account 4 years ago and I swore I’d never use it.” laughed LaCarbonara to InSpades. Famous last words. Like many of us who adamantly refuse to become hooked on social media outlets, it was only a matter of time before she cracked, and when she did, it was wide open. Now a moderator for both @ig_collection and @pr0ject_uno, and the curator of @elegance_in_abandonment, a page devoted to portraits shot in abandonment and decay, it is safe to say LaCarbonara’s found her social media sea legs. “I was quickly inspired by other artists and genres I was exposed to. I was obsessed with textures like peeling paint and rust which quickly turned into a serious interest in urban exploration. My current work is nature/macro photography.” LaCarbonara explained.
