Executive Director, Silver Eye Center for Photography
Leo Hsu is the Executive Director of Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh. Silver Eye’s mission is to promote the power of contemporary photography as a fine art by supporting and sharing the work of emerging, mid-career, under-represented and underseen artists. Leo is an editor at Fraction Magazine, wrote and edited for Fraction and Foto8/EI8HT and was a news photographer. He teaches in criticism and history of photography and studio at Carnegie Mellon University.
Hsu is interested in seeing recent work by emerging artists that speaks to contemporary social concerns while driven by subjective experience; that expands the possibilities of photography or engages critically with the history of photography; and/or that expresses a deep personal investment in the processes of art making. He is interested in works in progress. He is not interested in seeing portfolios that are primarily fashion or commercial.
