The COVID-19 outbreak has imposed restrictions in movement. As part of an ongoing initiative, photographers of Magnum Photo are sharing information and new work made in these strange and difficult times.
Lauren Randolph was born and raised in Reno Nevada, where she received a Bachelors degree in art before relocating to Los Angeles. She has been trained to find the beauty in the familiar – in light, color, prop, line, costume, or character. She has a creative eye that captures her imagination, and gives a new life to a best friend, a grandparent, or child; through this she has adopted the colorful nickname “Lauren Lemon.” Whether it is a staged shoot or a candid moment, Lauren not only brings out the personality and life of her subject, but instills her own as well. Those who follow Lauren’s work have gotten lost in the color, fantasy and vibrancy of her art, each piece being a reflection of her creative vision.
