? Leshko's Thrills and Chills series consists of darkly printed black and white gelatin silver photographs. The images are scenes from amusement parks, county fairs, and along boardwalks, taken with a Holga, often considered a toy camera. Leshko uses her camera to examine her own fears and emotions, all the while depicting the range of emotions other people experience while visiting amusement parks in search of adrenaline pumping rides.
