Laurence Philomène
Photographer

Laurence Philomene is a non-binary photographer, director and curator based in Montreal, Canada. Their work deals with questions of identity and selfhood as seen through a colorful queer + trans lens, blending documentary and fine art approaches.

Laurence’s work is informed by their lived experiences as a chronically ill, non-binary transgender artist coming of age amid the rise of internet culture and social media. They are interested in exploring western understandings of masculinity and femininity, and how those inform our perception of gender, visually. They are also fascinated by how femininity and masculinity can co-exist outside of the binary.

Laurence’s work on gender and identity has been published internationally in magazines such as Vice, Courrier International, The Independent, Dazed, I-D, Broadly, Teen Vogue, CBC arts, Wonderland, and Hunger Magazine. They have participated in over 30 exhibitions worldwide, including 4 solo exhibits in Toronto, Montreal, Berlin and Kracow.
