Laura Swanson


Contemporary Photographers


There is a ton of very good photography on Laura Swanson’s site. About Anti-Self-Portraits, she writes “Part biography, these images represent my discomfort with being looked at and wishing I could hide. […] By removing identity and having the shape of my body stand in for the idea of difference, there is more room for thoughts about how one looks at another. The exchange is not just about me and the viewer anymore - it has the opportunity to open up into a broader conversation about how difference is looked at.”
