Laura Stevens is a British photographer living in Paris. Her practice lies at the intersection between the female gaze and the personal in narratives of relation and transformation. In quiet, cinematic compositions, she illuminates a psychological state and an interior drama in her subjects. With a painterly eye to light, colour and gesture, she uses photography to reveal emotional depth. In both the still and moving image, Stevens creates studies of vulnerability, solitude and intimacy through a darkly, tender lens.
