March update

Thought I’d make an update on here since it’s been a while. I have taken the last few months as a bit of a personal sabbatical to heal from burn out and work on developing new projects, but I’m feeling ready to get back in action soon! I have been working on a new body of work of daily self portraits and diary images - thinking about productivity, the slow changes that come with HRT, passage of time, what is staged vs reality, beauty in the mundane, etc. This is a work in progress, not sure yet exactly where it’ll take me but I’m enjoying exploring new ideas visually, and making work outside of a commercial context/without putting too much expectation on it. 


I was invited to participate in my first residency, which will take place in Iceland next month with In House Outer Space - I’ll be working on this new body of work there and looking at the body in transformation vs landscape and icelandic folklore. I will post more about this soon ~


Here are a few images from this new project in progress


Currently, I have a print available as part of Boys! Boys! Boys! Volume 4, on paddle 8. The auction ends on March 28, click here to view it + bid : https://paddle8.com/work/laurence-philomene/172390-me-vs-others-sam-as-me/
