Leslie explains that in attending a number of weddings and funerals the past few years, she has become fascinated with the concept of family heirlooms. She states that they “seem to have an eternal life” in the way they connect families together by being handed down from generation to generation. These are from her "Silver" series: “[This] series studies a family—or a species—of objects that vary in shape, size, function, detail and condition, not unlike a human family…or relatives. En mass they are a family portrait.”
