“It has often been noted that Leonard, in her prints, keeps the black border that occurs in the printing process rather then cropping it out, as a way of integrating the problematics of viewing into the work.” Elisabeth Lebovici, Parkett No. 84, 2009

“1 Hour Photo & Video is representative of Zoe Leonard’s celebrated Analogue series. Between 1998 and 2009, Leonard photographed local storefronts, first in New York City and later in cities and towns throughout the world. In poignant images such as this, Leonard pictures casualties of globalization—here, a shuttered photo center in Brooklyn marked with graffiti. Leonard’s inclusion of the black frame edge further complicates the work, connecting the effects of global commercialization to the mass move from analogue to digital photography.” -Artspace
