Lora Robertson

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

Founding Partner and Design Director for The Satellite Collective in New York City, Lora is also a Leica master photographer and film maker. Lora won jury recognition at ArtPrize 2012 for her work advocating human rights issues. Her work has been exhibited at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Baryshnikov Arts Center, City University of New York, The Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Valley State University, Aquinas College, The 92nd St. Y, and The West End Theatre. She produces images in response to music and choreography, finding inspiration in movement and the liminal space created by sound, developing work through the process of authentic collaboration with classically trained composers and ballet dancers. Using large format cameras and meticulous in-camera methods, Lora reinvents the paintings of the Dutch art historical tradition of the seventeenth century in her own devised allegory. She works to re-create the distinctive light, clarity, and austerity in these paintings and has designed a lighting process using the thick glass lenses found in lighthouse beams. She is currently published in Fuel Your Process, Leica Fotografie International, and The Artful Dodge quarterly, published by The College of Wooster.
