This Norwegian fine arts photographer works with analogue black-and-white photography and employs genres such as staging and documentation. Landscapes, still lifes and portraits are recurring motifs, gladly interwoven into fictional stories. Leithe H. is especially interested in human relations and frequently utilizes this as a starting point in her projects.

In 2012, she won the Nordic Dummy Award for her book project “Notes”, published in 2013. The book, described as a journey through loss and melancholia, contains landscape and locality photos from the artist’s archives.

Leithe, educated in Norway, Sweden and Scotland, has exhibited in many galleries and art centres both nationally and internationally, amongst these the Akershus Art Centre, the Maria Veie Gallery and The Charlottenburg Art Hall. She is also a co-director of the art publication Special North (Spesial Nord).
