Laura Taylor
Photographer

I grew up in the comforts of the sleepy south in Augusta, Georgia. At 15, I received my first camera for Christmas. I started taking pictures of bugs and flowers in my backyard. Very soon I became lost in a world that I discovered looking through a lens. Photography became and continues to be the ultimate escape for me. As I grew braver as a photographer, I started recruiting family and friends to model for me. I quickly found people more fascinating subjects than flowers and now focus primarily on portraiture. I’ve always had a curious spirit, and a camera gives me an excuse to stare at people. I moved to New York City when I was 18 to work in a photography studio. At 21, I live in Los Angeles, California working as a freelance photographer. I find the California sun very agreeable.

  • César Cuspoca
    Artist
    In Memoriam / 1987–2022
    César Cuspoca (1987–2022) is a Colombian artist whose artistic practice principally nourishes questions of perception, the duality between appearance and disappearance, and materialism and immaterialism. It is, however, more concretely the idea of experience which takes a central role in his approach and which allows him to structure his creative process. (more…)
