Literature: Leila Jeffreys' photographs display a fascination with the natural world, specifically the way it can particularly delight in an overwhelmingly urban context. Modern day city dwellers are incredibly far removed from animals and landscapes that would have been common place in daily life over one hundred years ago. The artist celebrates even the smallest references to the natural world that can be enjoyed as respite from metropolitan life, if one takes the time to look.
