Eye for Art
Jo Meiers Leggett lives near Alamo Square in San Francisco with her dog and cat, Chance and Sally Tomato, both aging and lucky to have found her. Her son, Cameron, is a doctor at nearby Kaiser Permanente, and her daughter, Cate, is a certified massage therapist in Pittsburgh.
Jo learned photography in 1975 while living in Pittsburgh. She began to teach and win prizes, especially for her studies of animals, and her stunning portfolios have toured museums from Oregon to Usbekistan.
In 1989 she relocated to San Francisco and later became publisher of photo metro magazine, a premier showcase for art photography. She has sold her pictures to museums in Pittsburgh, San Diego, Austin, Brussels, and Paris. Her writing appears in two books, Our Mothers and Our Grandmothers, both available from Amazon.
Jo sent me several of her pictures, which I'll share with you in future entries. What you see here is only a sample of her extraordinary taste and talent.
