Lauren ZIMITSCH

Creative Professional

Hi and thanks for stopping by!

 

I am a Twin Cities-based photographer and artist. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF) with a primary emphasis in Photography, accompanied with a secondary emphasis in Art History. 

 

I've displayed work nationally, regionally and locally for various shows and exhibitions. I am passionate about art and exploration through creatively making and have experience working in various avenues of art and photography including alternative historic processes, Polaroids, 35mm and other analog film processes, transfers and digital photography. 

Besides taking pictures I also enjoy reading and writing. You can dig deep into my site and find two self-published books Things To Hold On To and The Unusual Apiary. I've also included my research on the benefits of utilizing photography in art therapy practices with adolescents. 

I document the way that I see the world and am here to share that lens with others in my personal and commercial work.
