A fascination with world culture has always inspired Heidi Laughton and has brought about her photography series. After spending time working on earlier cultural projects in kenya and China, Heidi Laughton has been dedicating her time recently to Native culture of America.
Since leaving a previous successful career commissioning and overseeing photo and video shoots for world renowned recording artists (at Sony Music UK), Heidi Laughton spends her time between the US and the UK, and has been working as a professional photographer, shooting and writing for magazines, advertising campaigns and working for non-profits.
In 2008 she curated and produced “Fresh Photo Fair” on behalf of the Lucie Foundation and oversaw a three day juried event of photographers from around the world. 2011 found her exhibiting in a group photojournalism show at the Orange County Center of Contemporary Art and a the Laguna Art Museum. In 2012 she was chosen as a judge for the 2012 PX3 Paris Photo Prize.
Both her "Spirit Hawk Eye" and "Yunnan Province" series have been published in magazines and exhibited in galleries
Her forte lies in researching stories, integrating with her subject matter and understanding the necessity to be trusted by the people who’s story she is telling.
