Lauren is an emerging documentary photographer based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, who is passionate about current political, social and cultural issues facing contemporary society. She has graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Photography, from Arts University Bournemouth and prior to this studied Creative and Editorial Photography.

We spoke to Lauren about her most recent work.

Off Season is informed by Foucault’s principles of heterotopias, with specific reference to the temporal. The series of images, made across a period of time in Bournemouth, documents absence in the transitory shift of the seasons. The images represent a cathartic process of recording and exploring in an attempt to reconcile an unfamiliar environment and establish a sense of belonging.
