Laura Barth says, "I have never been particularly good at long, drawn out conversations.

I tend to be better at things that are brief, direct, and to the point. What I love so much about photography is that you can say so much without having to say anything at all, and that there are so many photographic “words," all around us at any given time, that we can use.

I tend to think my photographic style is much like my preferred conversations: direct (but not without empathy or feeling), hopefully eloquent, sometimes awkward (but in a way that makes you laugh or think), lively, and always imbued with an appreciation of the conversation itself and its participants."

Laura Barth is an artist, musician, and horticulturist currently living in Blacksburg, Virginia. Primary media include photography (digital and analog), charcoal, watercolor, and mixed media.
