Laura Larson

The assumption of objectivity that continues to haunt photography—the desire to trust our eyes—is a central concern of my work. Mining the intersection between documentary and poetic practices, my subjects range from dollhouses to dirty hotel rooms to the paranormal. My work poses questions about the medium and its terms of representation: its materials, histories, and social meanings. While I identify as a photographer, my work encompasses film, video, digital media, and writing. I see my photographs as a product of my skepticism and desire to believe in the medium of photography.
