Lauren Luxenberg is a Canadian director and photographer currently residing in London, UK.
She started shooting people in the streets of Brick Lane in 2011 as she wanted to document her experience in London when first moving over.
Her craft is known for its sensation of ‘warm nostalgia’ as she aims to recreate a familiar 80’s feeling.
She spent a number of years working as head of social content at MR PORTER, and subsequently built her craft around photographing men. She shoots ‘through the female lens’, shifting the dynamic of vulnerability as she captures the souls of her subjects. She aims to bring more attention to topics like toxic masculinity, building confidence and mens mental health through this focus.
Lauren works commercially across fashion, lifestyle, sport and portraiture with a strong focus on narrative through movement and creative use of light.
She recently directed and produced a film in Iceland exploring the the topic of loneliness in vast landscapes. She also held an exhibition in Colombia in 2020 promoting the creative movement that grew out of years of repression.
Her favourite part of this job is the connection she builds with her subjects as she makes them feel comfortable and at ease.
