Jeff Mark Leavitt is a native Angeleno artist and educator. He is passionate about exploring local and ethnic histories and identities via visual mediums and art. His History MA thesis, Memories in Emulsion: Photography and the Remembrance of Japanese Incarceration, published in California State University, Fullerton’s Welebaethan journal of history, is a photographic investigation of how the memories and stories of the unconstitutional incarceration of over 100,000 Japanese Americans during World War II are preserved, edited, or forgotten today at Manzanar National Historic Site. He received his BA and MA in history from UCLA and Cal State Fullerton, respectively, and has recently fulfilled a promise to himself that he would go back and finish his photography degree at Santa Monica College. He is volunteers as an Artist-Mentor to youth from underserved communities at Venice Arts to help photography students navigate their visual worlds.
