Senior Spotlight: Lauren Meister

Lauren Meister (Cincinnati, OH) documented the influence of relationships through the lens of a camera. For her subjects, she's made the most of the interview process to develop a deeper understanding of her sitters. In form, however, the photographs are thereafter somewhat unusual. They are printed on metal, for example, and you can see the traces of preparatory coating techniques she devised to neutralize the reflective surface and achieve the evenness of tone. The image below has re-photographed rather well, don't you think? 

Portraiture is my passion. It is a way for me to express words and emotions that otherwise would go untold. Moments are fleeting but through photography we are given the ability to capture a moment and remember it for years to come. This project was influenced by a quote from author C.S. Lewis, “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” My goal is to reach the core of my sitters to interpret their stories. By using a traditional medium and non-traditional materials I am able to unveil multiple relationships. -- Lauren Meister
