Seeing the World around You
by Lauri Novak
Laurie Novak is an award-winning fine art photographer, mentor, and author based outside of Chicago. She has an eye for photographing architecture, traveling as much as possible and just wandering in nature with her camera.
One of the questions I’m asked most often both by viewers of my work and other photographers is, “How did you see that?” I work hard to show different perspectives, unique angles and the everyday details of various subjects. I’m very passionate about these topics and teaching them to audiences.
Having grown up within an hour of one of the most architecturally rich cities sparked an interest in architecture early in Lauri’s life that has been a recurring theme in her work over the years. The camera was ever-present in her life in one form or another, including the many family vacation photos that were taken by her mother. Lauri received her first camera when she was a child. Since then, the world has opened up to her through her viewfinder and has brought into focus many of the details in life that are often overlooked.
Traveling was also a big part of her life. Her family went somewhere new every year, which allowed Lauri to see different parts of the country, different cities and landscapes across the United States. This opened up so many opportunities for photographs and the wandering spirit which is part of who she is to this day. On her own, she traveled overseas and discovered different cultures, amazing historical architecture and the incredible beauty that is everywhere in this world, all the while capturing what she saw with her camera.
