Lauren Simonutti

Two images from “The Birthday Series”

I know very little about Lauren Simonutti. I’m just now beginning to read about her. All I know is that she had some type of mental illness, and that her photographs were strong, and that she seemed quite intelligent. She seemed to do all of her work in a very small area, in one room. She died this year.

Also, I just rewatched the Francesca Woodman documentary the other night, so all this is on my mind.

And below, a video of Lauren, explaining her work.

    I know quote a lot about her. Strange and interesting. I have one of her books. I think she is brilliant. Cheers, Gerald

    Thanks for posting this. I have two of her books from years back, and have always been curious about her and her work. This video sheds some light…

    Thanks for recognising Lauren’s work in this way. I knew her personally and while I met her originally through her work, we became best friends. Her legacy is her work and I am happy to know people are still talking about it and being influenced by it.
