Hi! I'm Laura. I write about photography, science, and technology. My work has primarily appeared in WIRED and Hyperallergic, but I've also had bylines in The Guardian, The Atlantic, Texas Monthly, BBC Travel, Dwell, Artsy, and the Paris Review Daily.

I have a Master's in Cultural Reporting and Criticism from NYU and an undergraduate degree in art. When I'm not writing, I'm typically hanging out with my 2-year-old daughter Iris and husband Nathan, making a Great British Bake Off-inspired mess in my kitchen, or curled up with a good book.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY

A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the old cliche goes, but some pictures also inspire an outpouring of language. Over the past few years, I've typed a quarter of a million words in response to images that surprised, delighted, horrified, amazed, or opened my eyes in some way. As Dorothea Lange wrote, “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”

 

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

"Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.” — Albert Einstein
