Brazilian photographer Ana Leal born in Northeast Brazil, is an artist who works primarily in photography. She considers photography to be a tool for depicting and escaping from reality and exploring these possibilities through ideas surrounding memory, the passage of time, and empty spaces. She is inspired by Minimalism and the Concretism movement in Brazil, as well as Impressionist painters. Through simple images, abstractions, and photographic collages, she aims to share the beauty of simplicity by depicting natural environments and everyday life, focusing on minutiae, like the details and the sensation of these environments, capturing their fragility and fugacity.

Her editing process consists of pairing down photographs to depict stillness and structure and often exhibit her works as diptychs or triptychs printed on various media, such as paper, canvas, and aluminum. Her hope is to offer introspective space for the viewers through the work in support of a contemplative lifestyle.

Her work has been exhibited across the United States and Brazil.
