“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
Lauri Gaffin’s discerning eye is clearly visible in her exceptional photographs. She captures images of people, of nature or even the artificiality of a movie set with only natural light and in full frame, rarely altering her intuition about the shuttered moment. Hence, her photographs record her subjects as they really exist yet each one is infused with her subtle and poetic point of view. Her photographs speak with a pictorial eloquence that communicates her whimsical sense of humor and her irresistible attraction to beauty.
Lauri has exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions since graduating from UCLA in 1975 with a B. A. in Photography. While at UCLA, Lauri studied primarily with Robert Heineken, Peter Goulds, Rita Yokoi and filmmaker Shirley Clarke. Lauri went on to received a M.F.A. from California Institute of Fine Arts in 1977 studying primarily with conceptual artist John Baldessari . There, she also had the opportunity to learn from Laurie Anderson, John Mandel and Michael Kelly and Doug Huebler. In addition to her photography, Lauri Gaffin is a noted Set Decorator for film. Her inimitable photographs have appeared in such well known films as: Fargo, The Pursuit of Happyness, Six Days Seven Nights, The Ring II, Charlie’s Angel’s I & II, Ironman I & II and Thor.
