Laura Aguilar

Statement

For nearly three decades, Laura Aguilar has used photography as a tool to speak about the people and issues in our culture that are not considered part of the mainstream. Series such as Clothed/Unclothed, Latina Lesbians, and Plush Pony challenges viewers’ preconceptions and give voice to marginalized communities. Over the years Aguilar has used the camera to photograph and investigate herself, beginning with her breakthrough series, In Sandy’s Room, and continuing with several stunning series that meld landscape and body, notably Nature Self-Portrait and Stillness. She has also explored the realm of ethnicity and gender in works such as her provocative and iconic self-portrait, the triptych Three Eagles Flying.
