Laura Blight is a photographer and academic from Essex, living and working in Cornwall. 

Traces left by human activity are recurring themes throughout Laura's work, exploring the tension between the familiar and unknown in domestic environments. Laura adopts a curious and intuitive approach to image making where presence, or rather absence is evidenced.

During Feb-March this year (2022) Laura was a creative lead for Springboard Studios at Falmouth University. An institution-wide wellbeing and employability research programme funded by the ESF. Laura ran a series of photographic led workshops focusing on playful, mindful and tactile activities to encourage students to reconnect with themselves and creativity in a non-assessed, process led way. 

In 2019 Laura was selected by London Creative Network (LCN) to join a tailored professional development programme for London-based artists and photographers. The programme is delivered by SPACE, Cockpit Arts, Fourcorners and Photofusion.
