Having worked “in the streets” as a sculptor, it was a natural step in the early 90’s for LeFevre to begin a parallel career as a street photographer. His most important series of photographs deals with the role of figurative advertising in the urban landscape. He is especially drawn to documenting the dialogue between advertisers and those who choose to graffiti or alter these idealized images.
Mr. LeFevre’s art can be found in the collections of Boston University, Hamilton College, NASA, Price Waterhouse, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Smithsonian, and the Everson Museum, DeCordova Museum and the Museum of the City of New York. His installations and exhibitions have been widely reviewed in a number of publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, American Craft Magazine and Landscape Architecture Magazine.
