Bio

Laura Blight is a photographer and visual artist from Essex, living and working in London.

Laura adopts a curious and intuitive approach to image making where presence, or rather absence is evidenced summoning the strange from the everyday. Traces left by human activity are recurring themes throughout her work, exploring the play between the strange and familiar in domestic environments.

In October 2019 Laura took part in the Collective Strategies programme organised by Pic.london in collaboration with London College of Communication. Alongside the Hemera Collective and 17 other participants selected through an open call, she will develop a concept within a group of 6, to produce new work together for a group show in London, October 2019.

In April 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. The programme runs until Spring 2020.
