Laura Bates

Artist Statement

I am currently a Chicago based photographer and have studied and worked in Los Angeles and London. I am very experimental with my work using polaroid, film, and digital. My photos are backed up by emotional and personal experiences that have lead me to be inspired by certain artists that inform my work. Through my inspirations my work has become very intuitive. Recurring themes that I explore are feminism, responses to patriarchy and idealized concept of beauty. I explore blending into the surroundings, correspondence between the environment and extending it to the body along with the aesthetic of fragmentation, camouflage and distortion.
