‘It took me three years before I was able to obtain what I had in mind. Thankfully, I finally succeeded last summer,’ says Laurence. ‘I love colours and contrasts. I feel that my photographs can capture and give out energy, positivism and enthusiasm for life. This new work is also very poetic.’ Laurence describes her unique style as ‘painting with light’. Her camera is her brush with which she captures the essence and the magic of everyday moments. She carefully observes life through her lenses, sensing and assessing the moment before finally releasing the shutter to catch the instant. There is no reframing, no brushing, no montage. In the developing process, Laurence brings out the phosphorescent colours and ghostly shades contained within the images. Born in Paris in 1976, Laurence studied at the American University of Paris, Cambridge University and Berkeley University.
