Working closely with models and the fashion industry, Lauren Withrow’s beautiful portraits look like frozen scenes taken out of a movie. “Film is, by large, my biggest influence aesthetically and I look at the world in that way,” the photographer shared with Musee Magazine. “The development of that has come from me letting my mind take me the direction I want to go.”
“The style that I shoot fashion is loosely based on how I shoot my personal work and I wanted there to be a cohesive nature despite having different subject matters,” she explained.
“In my personal work, I want to show emotional vulnerability and openness, but the strength and power that comes with revealing those personal thoughts. To translate that concept into fashion, my aim is to have a subject/character that appears to have a story, shows an emotion to fit that story, but also has a strength about their nature.”
