Woman Kind by Lauren Ross, Tonight 7pm POPgallery

Hey Friends - Here's my little teaser pic and a reminder about Woman Kind by Lauren Ross tonight at POPgallery. Lauren has been a dear friend, incredible source of inspiration and constant collaborator for the last few years. Always with a calming smile and a laid back demeanor (and her dog Maybell by her side), Lauren documents the life around her through her camera lens. Most notably for me have always been her beautiful images of the powerful women in her life, usually close friends and family. These images seem to capture intimately candid moments and place them not in the present, but in a timeless and almost ethereal state of being. As I follow Lauren's journeys through her art, sometimes I cannot figure out if the image I am looking at is of her mother in the seventies or a photo of her sister taken yesterday. And I must say that that it has always been the movement in her images that has spoken to me the most, always capturing the spirit of her subject in their most comfortable and natural state – never posed…always free!
