The awakening of adolescence has been a recurring theme that has always fascinated a great many visual artists; conflicts of identity, physical metamorphosis, psychological instability (more…)
Laura Sala Hojman began taking photography courses after completing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2014, including a postgraduate course in Photojournalism in 2017. Inspired by the work of the great photographers of the 20th century, like Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, Saul Leiter and Vivian Maier, she immediately fell in love with film photography (especially black and white film photography), and it has since become her favorite and most used medium. She shoots both 35mm film and medium format film.
During the past four years, Laura has done some photojournalistic work, and has dipped her toes into event photography and behind the scenes photography, but enjoys street photography and, in particular, portrait photography the most, as it creates a more controlled environment and thus more freedom to experiment.
Laura is presently putting the finishing touches on her last project and planning to start shooting her next one. She is also taking a two year course in Cinematography, which, she believes, will help expand both her technique and her photographic vision. An avid fan of the seventh art, she hopes to become a Director of Photography one day.
