Tim Leeds was born in Indiana, studied art at the Savannah College of Art & Design in the Deep South, and lives and works in Northern California and the Bay Area. 

He has documented the San Francisco downtown and financial district since 2015, using street and urban landscape, as well as architectural photography to document the evolution of its occupants and their place in the city. His first volume from this body of work, “Permanent Coffee Break,” published in April 2020, documents the dwindling financial services sector, the rise of big tech and fin-tech in the city, and a growing homeless population all the lead-up to the pandemic lockdown. He is currently sequencing another volume, “Downtown Death Spiral,” covering 2020-present.

Tim lives in Oakland, California with his wife and two children.
