Laura Zalenga is a German photographer and conceptual portraitist based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Her work mixes a clear and essential visual language with a powerful and hyper-composed subtextual narrative.
Laura Zalenga studied architecture in Munich, started photographing herself and making self-portraits and thus gained fame and recognition.
Her style and unique conceptual aesthetics have made her stand out in the art and photography scene, generating major collaborations with clients such as Adobe, United Nations, Artemide, Disney, Sony, Huawei, Sky Arts, Facebook, Fiat and Mercedes.
Her photographs have the power to tell deep stories and emotions, are spontaneous images constructed in detail with an extreme and direct documentary instinct. Each of her photographs expresses something and often tries to address important topics, from global issues to social problems and taboos.
Laura Zalenga believes in the healing power of self-portrait, a primordial need and instinct, a form of creativity and a direct way to express oneself.
