Born in Washington, D.C, Lauren Henkin grew up in Maryland and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in architecture from Washington University in St. Louis. She states, “My work focuses on answering the question, What will last? I work from the inside out, using internal narrative as the foundation in which to produce objects that reinterpret space, light and form found in the external.” Henkin is an educator, reviewer, writer, frequent speaker, photolucida advisory board member, author of numerous books, and active member in the photographic community. Her work is widely collected by private collectors as well as institutions such as Southeast Museum of Photography, Yale University and Dartmouth College.
