Laura Bennett  Pearland, Texas, USA

As a mother of nine children, Laura Bennett spent many years moving to the rhythm of others and keeping order in an otherwise chaotic world. During that time she earned B.A. degrees in Journalism and in Studio Art from Humboldt State University in California. Her Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Photo / Digital Media is from the University of Houston, where she occasionally teaches as adjunct Fine Art faculty.

Bennett’s work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide. In 2008 her body of work titled Infectious Myth was awarded a grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. Myth is an ongoing narrative involving four female archetypes that Bennett herself created – Agnes, Eleanor, Edith and Helen. Each represents a transitory phase in the female life cycle. A recent exhibition title Thrive at Diverse Works in Houston included Bennett’s work from her new Dames of Anatomy series, a body of work that cleverly combines old glass negatives with medical illustrations.

Bennett’s work has been published in Christopher James’ The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, SHOTS Dreams Issue, Fotophile, and Photography Forum’s The Best of Photography Annual 2008, among others. She currently has three pieces in the Texas National Juried Exhibition, one of which won Honorable Mention.

Bennett uses an old Gundlach 8 x 10, a 4 x 5 pinhole, a Mamiya RB67 and a 4 x 5 Press King Camera, as well as a Holga and an Agfa Clack. She makes platinum palladium and silver gelatin prints, but also scans old glass negatives, film, objects, antique medical illustrations and found negatives for transformation in the computer.
