I don't know why I hadn't written a testimonial about Laura, yet! I've been following her work for years, and it has inspired me immensely. There's a darkness to it, a depth that we can't always find in self-portrait artists. I think the best word to describe Laura's work is 'fearless'. She pours herself into her c… Read more

I don't know why I hadn't written a testimonial about Laura, yet! I've been following her work for years, and it has inspired me immensely. There's a darkness to it, a depth that we can't always find in self-portrait artists. I think the best word to describe Laura's work is 'fearless'. She pours herself into her conceptual work in such a way that her pictures, some incredibly simple at first sight, gain a weight and a dimension that makes them incredible. It's a beautiful thing to see. It's an absolute joy to follow her work!

It's when you meet someone and you know they're something special. Inspiring, beautiful, passionate, genuine. I could look at your photos forever (and I'm still in the process of going from the oldest to the newest). Piece by piece you show yourself, and every piece is just as beautiful and fascinating as the one before. I love how your work is so personal, and so varied. With your manipulations and raw emotions. The softness and the clearness. You dare to experiment, and you dare to be honest. I hope you never stop doing photography. Your vision, emotions and love for what you do and the people around you inspire me. You inspire me, Laura. I wish I lived closer, so I could be there for you. Just know I wish you the very best, and no matter what life throws at you, you will get through it. You're not alone. And if there's ever another chance to meet up, I'd book the flight/train in a heartbeat and you are always welcome here. I believe in you, with whatever you do, and I will be here, a couple of hundred miles away, supporting you and cheering you on. Love always ♥

(sometimes the last thing I do at the end of the day is coming back to your photostream and looking at your photographs and then going to bed with a smile on my face. by that, from time to time, your photographs grew to something familiar and comforting for me.) you know that feeling when something inspires you so much that it is really moving something inside of you and that feeling grows and grows whenever time passes till you can't hold it back anymore and you just need to let it go, so all the movement, the urge to create inside of you finds an outlet as a photograph? that's exactly what your photographs always done to me and therefore i'm so so thankful. you must have the most imaginative little mind. i'm most in love with your photographs that appear so fragile that they seem as if they're just about to break. then there are the ones that are filled with so much imagination and a sense of perfection but also pure emotion, rawness and honestly. but above all, your beautiful soul and mind always finds an own, special place in all of your photographs and that's the reason why i'm so in love with what you create ♥

Laura is an amazing photographer that knows how to make a portrait work very well. Her self portraits are amazing and she isn't afraid to be herself in front of the camera and be honest. Her pictures are full of emotion and passion and I love them all. I could rant on like this forever because Laura, you are awesome and you deserve 1000000 testimonials, but I think I should just let everyone check out your stream themselves and fall in love with your photography just like I did.

You already said you L.O.V.E to snap photos. I really do appreciate her vision for photography in general. Her captures display her conscious effort to alter the way images can display beauty. Her beauty as well. Thanks hun.
