Hiiii!! I’ve been working on this portrait series for a while now, it’s ongoing but today I get to release the first part!! You can see a preview of it up on Broadly & the full series below!!
This is the first instalment of an ongoing portrait series I’m working on. My aim with this series is to showcase a diversity of trans & non-binary experiences that tend to be under-represented in mainstream media & give non-binary subjects agency regarding how they are represented. It’s also an opportunity for me to document my friends & their unique style & point of view. As someone who identifies as non-binary it’s obviously a very personal topic for me but I wanted the photos to go beyond my own identity and really be a collaboration between me & the models.

Hi! Finally got around to publishing some of my favourite photos I took last year - check them out on Sukeban (& here they are below as well)
These photos are part of a loosely ongoing series I’ve been working on over the last year, photographing platonic intimacy in friendships around me. Fatine, Anna and I all went to college together - we took these photos on a really cold day in February, I walked up to Fatine’s house and Anna showed up a bit later with some pastries, I had asked them if I could take some photos of the two of them and they told me they love to take baths together so that’s what we did. Most of my work is staged/conceptual but whenever I get the chance to capture something real like this I love it so much, I love having the chance to enter into someone else’s world for a little bit. These days, Fatine just released a clothing collection (Gerald et Fatine SS17) & Anna is in a band called Security.
Hi!! I’ve got lots of stuff coming up this week!! First up is the second instalment of my artist interview series on Adolescent. This time, I interviewed my friend Rachel Louise Hodgson, who was visiting from Brighton (UK) last month!! We talked about colours, instagram, and basically just had a good time doodling around my house.
check out the whole interview here :
will publish more photos of rachel in my fall photo diary coming up but here’s one for now :)
oh and I also finally started updating my society6 store again! https://society6.com/laurencephilomene :) And as always if you’d like a custom/signed print of any of my images just email me at laurencephilomenephoto(at)gmail(dot)com for details.
I finally get to release one of my favorite things I’ve shot in a long time!! I found this jewelry company based in the UK on instagram (camp jewelry) and was immediately obsessed with their weird amorphous brooches, so I shot this still life/blob photo series just playing with the shapes & my favourite colours. Wolfie did the nails & modelled for it <3
you can check it out up on Polyester Zine & here are the images below as well!
ps working on a collab with polyester coming in january 2017… it’s going to be something big & exciting!!
& for those of you in Montreal, I’ll be tabling at expozine for the 4th (5th?) year in a row this weekend! printed lots of new stuff for it :)
I rarely post commercial/commissioned work on here because I tend to keep that separate but lately I’ve been having a lot of fun shooting for local designers, so here’s some images from that :)
First up are some photos from my long-time collaborator kayleigh peddie’s fall 2016 lingerie line. We shot this in two part, with my friends chloe feller & rhiannon collett modelling. I’ve been shooting kayleigh’s lookbooks for a few years now but this one was especially fun as we introduced a bit more colour than usual!!!
I also recently shot some photos for shop biohazard’s website revamp shooting some chockers & bracelets with my friend wolfie as the model plus the cutest little critter, here are some of my favorite shots <3
