2013 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Lori is interested in making photographs that describe connection and explore how our humanity is defined by our relationships with one another. Her projects primarily focus on themes of economic injustice, violence against women, and mass incarceration. She looks for ways to tell these stories through a lens of possibility by demonstrating how people, when acting together, make change or provide support from within. Lori created project-based works that are interactive. She later exhibits the work with community input that is accessible and engaging to diverse audiences, with the hope that they will ignite and contribute to conversation. Lori is a founding member of the New Orleans Photo Alliance, which was created to build community and opportunities for artists devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
