Recent press

As I previously shared on here, I was scheduled to have some work exhibited at Fotografiska NY as part of the exhbition “New Visions” in collaboration with Vice. Unfortunately, the museum was forced to close under covid-19 measures the day the exhibition opened! In order to bring more visibility to its artists during this time, Fotografiska has put together a new online series titled “Fotographers in Focus”. 


You can watch my fotographers in focus session where I chat about my practice, being in isolation, and my project “Huldufólk” which was shot in iceland last year here : https://www.fotografiska.com/nyc/the-foto-sessions/fotographers-in-focus

I also did an in-depth interview with Lucie Foundation about my project “Puberty”, after having received their Emerging Artist Scholarship this past year to continue working on the project. You can read that here: https://www.luciefoundation.org/interview-with-laurence-philomene

May update

Some things I’ve been up to this past month in isolation :


1. I shot a self-portrait for refinery29 as part of a piece where they commissioned 29 photographers around the world to share what their experience is during the covid-19 outbreak on a given day at 3 pm. You can see the full piece here : https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2020/05/9702198/photographer-experience-coronavirus


2. I also shot some portraits of my friend Lucky (who is in quarantine with us) as part of our ongoing collaborative documentary project. These were published as part of this month’s Polyester Zine Newsletter issue, which is a monthly digital zine I invite you to check out here : https://www.polyesterzine.com/the-newsletter


3. I’ve also been participating in an amazing group project with women & non-binary photographers around the world documenting our lives during the pandemic. You can see daily updates of everyone’s work here : https://www.instagram.com/wpthejournal/


And here are some of my favorite images shot at home / from my ongoing project puberty over the last couple of months.
