Lauren is a freelance photographer and former corporate attorney who left an unfulfilling, 16-year career, to follow her passion for photography. One of her greatest joys is to make candid photographs of people where a single frame can tell a multitude of stories, each one depending on the viewer’s interpretation.
She is attracted to ideas and stories that display our commonalities as people; she believes that, as human beings, we are much more alike than we are different. Accordingly, Coney Island is one of her favorite places to photograph; whether or not she gets a good shot, she leaves with a smile on her face.
Her photography has received several awards and has been exhibited at various venues around the world, including: "The Fence" at Photoville, NYC; the Museum of the City of New York, NYC; Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, NYC; Umbrella Arts Gallery, NYC; PhotoLeiden, The Netherlands; Gudberg Nerger Gallery, Hamburg, DE; the Center For Fine Art Photography, Colorado, the Miami Street Photography Festival, and Rayko Photo Center, SF. Her work and interviews have been published in a variety of publications, including The New York Times; CBS News; New Yorker Magazine; Slate Magazine; All-About-Photo.com; Il Repubblica; Adore Noire Magazine; ViewFind; PDN Online; YourDailyPhotograph.com; Desert Leaf Magazine; Rangefinder Magazine, World Photography Organization, and the Phoblographer.
