Leslie Baldwin

Photography Editor
Texas Monthly

Leslie Baldwin, photography editor of Austin, Texas-based Texas Monthly, made a pinhole camera out of a shoebox for a sixth grade science project and was hopelessly hooked. She earned degrees in fine arts and art history from the University of Texas, indulged her wanderlust with European jaunts and was an au pair in Paris [France]. Her next stop was New York, where she found freelance gigs—eventually becoming Matt Mahurin’s studio manager and then cover coordinator for Time creative director Arthur Hochstein. After eight years in New York City, a little homesick and a lot hungry for genuine Tex-Mex, Baldwin jumped at an offer from Texas Monthly and moved back to Austin in 2003. She is married and has a young daughter.
