This lecture is presented by the Center for Alternative Photography and ICP.

Born in Washington, D.C., artist Lauren Henkin grew up in Maryland, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and now resides in New York City. She states, "My work focuses on the question, What will last? I work from the inside out, using internal narrative as the foundation in which to produce objects that reinterpret space, light and form found in the external."

Henkin is an educator, reviewer, frequent speaker, photolucida advisory board member, author and publisher of multiple books, and active member in the photographic community. Her work is widely collected by institutions such as the Southeast Museum of Photography, Yale University, and Dartmouth College as well as numerous private collectors. Her work has been published in numerous journals on photography and book arts including Black+White Magazine, Photo District News, Shots Magazine, Diffusion Magazine, Flak Photo, Urbanautica, Landscape Stories, Parenthesis, and The Washington Post. She is both a Px3 multi-category award and Oregon Regional Arts & Culture Council grant winner, with other award nominations in both the Brink Emerging Artist and Contemporary Northwest Art Awards. She also founded her own imprint, Vela Noche, a small fine press publishing company and online shop.
