Lauree Feldman, photographer and graphic artist, has lived and worked in New York City since 1977. She began her career in corporate communications as a Production Assistant, creating multi-projector slide shows that involved thousands of slides, programmed to create animated effects. Lauree worked her way through the art departments that produced these visuals, to the camera.
After 10 years of technical animation photography, Lauree travelled around the world. In 1991 she produced Eye on Asia, an exhibition of large, black and white silver bromide prints. Other collections of black & white photography include: River Moods - an exposé of the Hudson River,
shot between 1970 and 1981; Children of Jerusalem - shot during 1979-80; and Palestine Prints - a selection of work created between 1974 and 1990. These collections have been widely exhibited.
Lauree signed as a stock photographer in 1981– she currently holds a contract with Getty Images. Her photography reflects her lifelong interests in travel, nature and social history.
In the 1990’s Lauree switched from film to digital. Commercial corporate communications work took the form of desktop publishing – designing and producing a myriad of printed material and websites. She edited and produced a not-for-profit newsletter for twenty years and specialized in special event photography.
A three-time grant recipient from the New York Foundation for the Arts, Lauree produced Sacred Stones, a collection of images of Aboriginal spiritual sites, in 2004; and Tibet, in 2006. In 2008 she created a series of didactic panels, in collaboration with artist Edwina Sandys, to accompany her "Breakthrough" exhibition.
FutureSelf, digitally abstracted nature photos printed with ink on canvas, were first displayed in Manhattan in early 2012. EXPLORATIONS, a further development of this work, was shown in 2016 at Roost Studios & Art Gallery in New Paltz, NY. DERIVATIONS was displayed at Roost Studios & Art Gallery in 2019; and her most recent work, Africa, was scheduled for display in 2020 at Roost where Lauree serves on the Board of Directors. Her 2020 exhibition was cancelled due to Covid. Individual prints may be ordered through Roost's online shop. The Africa show catalog is also available online.
Lauree Feldman is a graduate of Columbia University, School of General Studies (‘86). She holds a B.A. in Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures, with a major in Arabic and Islam.
