Lou Lesko is an American photographer and writer. He started shooting pictures in the fashion industry and then expanded his métier to include photojournalism so he could travel to splendid places on someone else’s dime. His work has been published worldwide and has been recognized as “pretty gosh darn good” by a few award bestowing associations.
He is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s writing program, a Lowell Thomas Award winner for photojournalism, a former editor at National Geographic Assignment, and the author of two books. He also founded BlinkBid, the world’s best business software for creatives.
The latest editorial project from Lou is The Ghost of Communism. An essay about becoming a photojournalist by pretending to be a photojournalist. The images from the story are available for purchase from the online gallery. Look for the story to release in early September.Visit The Gallery
