Laura Creecy is a self-taught photographer, heavily influenced by two diametric styles: 1930’s & 40’s Documentary FSA, which strove to capture people and places realistically in their environments, and cinema mise-en-scene, where in fictional environments, every attention to detail is perfected. However, both styles strive to tell a story within a single frame.
I rarely work in the confines of studio, preferring to adventure out into the world searching for objects and faces that inspire and amuse my imagination. Intrigued with contrasting colors, textures, movement, and light, each photograph I create presents ordinary people or objects in a heightened reality. I only use the natural light available to me in each location I shoot in, whether an outdoor sunset or a grungy LA night club. I have worked as a photojournalist and fine art photographer blending both styles as a culmination my study of Live Burlesque.
As an artist, I have produced work in all forms of visual media, including photography, film, animation, theater, web design, graphic design, pastel, and mixed media. Throughout my career, I have directed art and theater programs, and lectured and taught all ages photography, digital video production, and animation.
