The Lens of Lauren Carlyle Smith
Lauren Carlyle Smith is more than just a photographer. She is a well-respected creative force behind brands such as Beats by Dre, Airbnb, and Southwest Airlines. What separates her from the pack of photographers is the collective calm in each image for #morethanamirror. She is striking the perfect balance between the erotic and sensual.
Carlyle Smith shoots most of her work in Los Angeles. Among the subjects dotted throughout Smith’s portfolio of work, strong women feature prominently. Her photographs give us an intimate and surprising glimpse of women in their personal space. The imagery is soft and alluring, giving us a peek into private moments. The point that this artist is trying to make is women are more than what they see in the mirror.
