I really love Lauren Poor's work. Every photograph she takes is so heavily crafted. You can tell she styles every single aspect of the photograph from the quirky handmade props to the body paint that her models are usually seen wearing. Always a bit experimental and colorful, each of Poor's photographs often end up looking like something completely unlike a typical photograph. They're edited, layered, and ultimately enhanced but, of course, never with something as typical as Photoshop. Rudimentary scribbles, bits of pipe cleaner, and paint smudges frame her portraits of already heavily-made up subjects. They're icons, they're weirdo yearbook photos, they're sociopolitical statements...they're really cool!
