"Documenting the Nameless Generation", Leila Danielle Stambouli photographs and paints young creatives in the "City of Saints", Montréal. Wandering the city streets, LDS has found her muses on the sidewalks and bike paths of the Plateau and the Mile End. Artists, musicians, writers and style-setters are the subjects of her graphic portraits.
From her vantage point four storeys above the Mile-End rooftops, Leila immortalizes an eclectic client base at her Rue de Gaspé studio.

Leila's openness and good vibes made it a great pleasure to be in her photoshoot. She snaps pictures discreetly, leaving space for her subjects to rise out in their uniqueness. Great eye for color, texture and moment! Hoda Adra

It was a very pleasant experience to be photographed by Leila. She knew what she was looking for and how to achieve it, and she made the subject(me) feel at ease before, during and after the shoot. It was all quick and efficient! Eva Cvijanovic
