Laura Hospes (1994) has been capturing her own self with the camera since the tender age
of 16, out of a need to connect with people. This need has not waned over the years; it
has only become more necessary. Hospes' self portraits are her way of making clear what
is inside of her. Her camera consoles and understands her better than anyone else. Photography
is her medium to accept and process the many struggles in her life. The resulting images
are intense and arresting, as well as being a captivating glimpse inside the world of
a young woman dealing with depression and anxiety.
Hospes was named one of the 50 best emerging photographers of 2015 by the international
jury for the Lensculture Emerging Talent Awards. Her work has been frequently featured
both home and abroad.
