Heidi Lender

The Photographer

Fashion writer and photo stylist, turned photographer, Heidi Lender’s new series She Can Leap Tall Buildings, is a nod to her mom, and all women who do it all, and do it all well. Heidi poses wearing a black wig (along with the occasional prop) in front of black graphic backgrounds, representing all the different roles women take on. Having only picked up a camera in 2009, her impressive work in this self-portrait series is both whimsical and thoughtful.
