The odds are that you’ve seen photographer and multimedia artist Laura Weyl somewhere in New York. When she’s not on set acting or filming, Weyl is out in the city with a camera in her hand, photographing at underground shows, colorful parades, tony gallery openings, or simply in Central Park at an impromptu shoot.

“When I see someone that intrigues me, I pursue them,” Weyl explains, “whether it means talking to them in the street, contacting someone whose work I’ve seen at a gallery, or confronting someone I see dancing at a club. I am never shy or intimidated anymore because I see a glimpse of these individuals that inspires me in a platonic state, and I want to share the mood and memory that they evoke with the world. Sometimes they are right there in their moment and all I have to do is take it, but often I have to bring them to a place where their higher self can be realized, visually. This is somewhere they are comfortable and can open to┬átheir most unguarded and raw state.”
