‘Interview With A Cockatoo (Or Two)’ by Leila Jeffreys

When publishers didn’t take up the offer to produce her bird book, Australian fine-art photographer Leila Jeffreys decided to go it alone and self publish with Momento Pro. She felt that a photo book was an affordable format for her fans that didn’t diminish the value of her fine art prints.

 

Leila Jeffreys is one of a few Australian photographers who is equally adored by fine art collectors as she is by creatives, stylists and the general public.
