Laura Sala Hojman
Photographer

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.

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
