Bio Laura Crosta is a photographer & director specializing in the documentation of people as they live, exist and interact with life. She has a sophisticated, energetic style that echoes her experiences working with the advertising and music industries combined with her personal journalism projects. Her work has taken her to Ghana, Africa, across Asia, Europe, and Latin America. To Laura every image is a story. She has a passion for quirky projects which is seen in her study of Barbie dolls, but equally embraces the quiet portraiture that eloquently reveals the personality of the subject in front her lens. Laura’s art form is her life and using it to tell stories is her passion. This has given her a uniquely diverse career. Humor is a component that enters into her work that stemmed from her east coast to Los Angeles relocation experience. However, she has also embarked upon weighty projects like Jeff Fischer’s dating experiences with prostitutes for the book project “I Date a Hooker.” A true believer in immersing herself in her work she dropped everything to travel on a tour bus with band "The Hotel Cafe’" so she could be with them day and night to realize her directorial debut. The outcome from her efforts was a documentary about "The Hotel Cafe’ Tour" which was picked up by The Documentary Chanel and received praise and commendations from four festival appearances. Her latest project is titled Energy, a study of the human body’s measure as a self-existing life entity. This series of portraits depicts individuals of all ages and shapes in their simplistic form. By measuring the BMR and heart rate of each individual the calculations reveal what our bodies need to exist at a resting state and how efficient our bodies function. Currently Laura splits her time in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Some of her Clients and Subjects include: Lyft, Paris Baguette, Microsoft, ESPN, Microsoft, Sony, Nike, Canon, Adidas, Mini, Toyota, Kelly Clarkson, Kiss, Michael Jordan, Ru Paul, Run DMC, George Clinton, Girltalk, Nasa & Jewel.
