Lauren Lepore is a 23 year old self taught film photographer from NYC.
Lauren prefers to photograph strangers. She used to shoot a lot of models but the pictures never meant much to her. Strangers are different. Both candid and posed shots of someone you don’t know, always releases so much emotion.
What Lauren sees may or may not be seen by others and through the use of photography she allow views into worlds they don’t know, but also views into worlds they used to know and can reminisce on.
Lauren shoots strictly 35mm because it captures emotions and feelings in a way digital photography could never. Each time Lauren takes a picture she feels like she’s putting a little piece of herself and her story into it.
People connect and relate with Lauren’s personal and intimate photography because they can feel what she’s put into it.
They relate to Lauren’s photos because we’ve all felt it, just not all of us capture it. Lauren never intended on photographing for anyone’s appreciation. She does it for herself, but the fact that she has been able to build a following off of photos that are so real and raw to her, is beautiful. Lauren wants her pictures to make people feel and think.
Lauren’s work will also be featured in our upcoming print publication. For more of Lauren’s work check out herInstagram and website.
