Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, self-taught photographer Lauren Wuornos and her work immerse us in an electrifying and mystical atmosphere. Playing with vibrant colours and models with an evasive look, the artist makes pictures where it seems almost to have arrived at the heart of a sci-fi movie.

«I’m influenced by cinema, the future, and vivid dreams so like to pay special attention to composition and colour. I’m drawn towards the dark and mysterious. I’m curious about all the hidden places where the spirit still dwells and the future of immersive technology. I’d love to someday create meaningful work within a blend of interactive augmented and virtual reality as a new form of storytelling for the future», she says.

Her visual signature is vivid and her photographs’ aesthetics remain elegant and almost futuristic.
