Hi! I'm Laura, a freelance writer and journalist based in Austin, Texas. I've covered a range of topics, from smartphone photography to the world's biggest yew hedge. My work has appeared regularly in WIRED and Hyperallergic, though I've also had bylines in The Guardian, The AtlanticTexas Monthly, BBC Travel, Dwell, Artsy, and the Paris Review Daily.

I hold a master's degree in Cultural Reporting and Criticism from NYU and a bachelor's degree in painting. When I'm not working, I love to read, draw, and bake (lately, almond tarts). 



"A picture is worth a thousand words," but great pictures also provoke conversation. The following is a selection of articles I've written about photography.
