Laurence Siegel has been working in black and white street photography and dance video for the past dozen years.
He has a passion for the tension and visually evident relationships between people and the life of their surroundings. His work captures the drama of a moment in which subjects and the space they occupy are connected in tableau so that each is expressive.
In the past several years, he has displayed work from the streets and stages of of Siena, Venice, Barcelona, Seville, Gerona, Grenada, Cordoba, Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, Mongolia and Toronto.
All images are processed archivally by hand using traditional darkroom techniques. The works are fibre based gelatin silver prints from both 35 mm and medium format negatives.
He is a member and serves on the board of Gallery 44 – Centre for Contemporary Photography.
