Critical examination of the practices of image production and contextualisation is a central thread running through all of Eva's work, which explores contested societal phenomena such as colonialism, racism and migration. Leitolf's work often combines photography with textual elements – from police reports and information researched from a wide range of sources to personal notes drawn from her journal. Adopting a conceptual approach, Leitolf visualises concrete conflicts, evaluates the absent, and captures traces of xenophobia and racism, while at all times questioning the boundaries between the foreign and the familiar.
