Leila Koren

BIO

Leila Koren once had a strangely eventful life here and overseas. She ballroom danced with Baz Luhrman, David Lynch told her how happy she looked, she loitered/worked in Annie Leibovitz’s New York studio for a few months organising her personal photos for her retrospective book, and one time Scary Spice / Mel B invited her to go clubbing, which she did. Leila is now happily living in Melbourne and is a filmmaker, Media/Art teacher and photographer. She enjoys creating beautiful, personal imagery with performers inspired by 1930s-40s Hollywood and contemporary art photography and working with students to make their creative visions come true.
