» Teacher: Laura Zalenga
Laura Zalenga, born in 1990, is a German conceptual photographer living in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). The degree in architecture has led to the development of a very clear and minimalist visual language of her work, which often consists of self-portraits defined by the artist as “not-my-self”, since she proposes a reading of the subject as an anonymous protagonist, rather than a specific person.
The protagonists of her portraits are often vulnerable and portrayed in situations in which they try to find their space.
Laura Zalenga believes in the healing power of the self-portrait as well as the underrated depth of the genre. The artist uses the self-portrait not only to address social and taboo topics, but also in his professional work with well-known and prominent clients such as Adobe, Disney, Sony and United Nations.
