Featured Artist : Lauren Roeder

 

lauren

  • My favorite artists are: Helen Levitt, Garry Winogrand, Weegee, Stephen Shore, Robert Frank.
  • Right now my work is: of and about lives, and stains of lives and lived experiences.
  • I love Queens because: in Astoria, you can buy cough medicine, Starburst, a light bulb, a lovely slice of pizza, or chicken souvlaki at four in the morning.
  • When I was a kid: I threw up a lot in school and watched “Matilda” every day.
  • I find inspiration in: the carefully-placed, crooked lip-stain of an older woman, the badly-reproduced painting hanging in a window, a mother and her thirteen-year-old son on line for the Haunted Mansion at Disney World—nice, poignant, genuine occasions.
  • Do: watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • Don’t: forget to buy yourself flowers.
  • Dream Project: pretty much just to be able to photograph all over the country—people, and things.
