Our judge for the April Showers contest is Isa Leshko, a former software engineer who left the online world to pursue photography full-time. We will post the Final 50 gallery and the Voting Machine Monday morning.

Her bio:

Isa Leshko grew up in Carteret, an industrial town off the New Jersey Turnpike. She received her BA from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, where she studied psychology with an emphasis on neurobiology and cognitive science. Leshko spent the 1990s working for startups as a project manager and software engineer before she discovered her passion for photography. She has studied at the New England School of Photography in Boston and the Woodstock Center for Photography in New York. In 2008, she was selected as a fellow in the Artist Professional Toolbox Program organized by the Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston.

Current and upcoming shows where you can find her work:
> Boston Drawing Project, Carroll and Sons, Boston
> Dux Femina Facti: A Woman is in Charge, Susan Maasch Fine Art, Portland, Maine
> Small Works from the Susan Maasch Fine Art Photography Collection, Susan Maasch Fine Art, Portland, Maine
> Community of Artists Juried Exhibition, Danforth Museum of Art, Framingham (opening June 3)

Despite no longer working in the tech sector, Leshko is never far from a blinking cursor. Here are a few places where you can find her online:

Leshko is enthralled with toy and vintage cameras. As an incorrigible perfectionist, she finds it liberating to create images that are beautifully imperfect. In the fall, she will teach a workshop on toy camera photography at the Griffin Museum of Photography. For more information, contact Isa through her web site.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
