William Lesch has been a working photographer for over twenty years. He earned his BFA in photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson in 1978. Lesch had his first one-person show at the newly established Center for Creative Photography in Tucson in 1979, and since that time his work has been included in over one hundred group and one-man shows, both locally and around the world.
He began shooting at night in the mid to late seventies, and developed his signature style of light painting in the early 80’s. A monograph of his color desert light painting work was published by Treville Press in 1990.
In addition to his split-exposure and night photography, Lesch is currently exploring aerial studies of the landscape. Lesch maintains an active schedule of shows and exhibits, and his work is represented in Arizona by Etherton Gallery in Tucson and Larsen Gallery in Scottsdale.
