In about 12 hours Laurel Golio is off to shoot a story for the next issue of Printed Pages, and as we were emailing I realised she’d never been featured on the site before. Time to acquaint you.
Laurel is a young photographer working in Brooklyn NYC having graduated with a degree in Visual Anthropology from Smith College. Her commercial work has so far involved a number of brilliant studio visits to some of the city’s up-and-coming creative talents, where she’s captured them beautifully, and with apparent ease, in their everyday environments.
Her personal work focuses more on traditional portraiture; atmospheric shots of subjects exposing a vulnerability to the camera that only a handful of photographers are able to tease out. Her ongoing work It’s OK To Love Me, a body of images documenting transgender individuals, particularly demonstrated the candour Laurel is able to prise out of her sitters.
