Trained as a photographer in traditional studio programs, Legatt uses photography as both a tool for documentation and social engagement. Whether its through direct contact with the photograph as an object or as a catalyst for community exchange, the photograph is used as a powerful catalyst for story-telling and interaction.
In 2002, Legatt's interest in the photograph began to expand beyond the typical documentation of place or person. This curiosity in object and how an audience engages with it pushed Legatt;s work to be more interactive and community-driven. She quickly found a home with interactive installation and community engagement or social practice work.
Work in this section represents her progression from traditional landscape photographer to social practice artist with a photography background.
