Artist Profile – Laura Fawaz
Laura Fawaz is a photojournalist not only by degree, but also by passion. As a child, she would always take her mom’s cameras to take pictures of anything and anyone. Her passion for photography grew in high school when she took her first official photography class and was introduced to working in the black and white dark room. Then in college, when pursuing a career path, a guidance counselor pointed out her strengths of writing, photography, and passion for the news media, and suggested photojournalism. Laura has been grateful for that conversation all of her life.
After college she has worked in such freelance positions as a writer, reporter, event photographer, magazine editor, a broadcast reporter, an anchor, and a fine art photographer.
She graduated from Oakland University with a degree in broadcast journalism, and a double minor of Islamic Studies, and studio art, with a focus in photography.
Laura’s gallery photos are best known for the attention to detail; whether it's water droplets on flowers, or of the vibrant, colorful skyline of a spring sunrise. Her collections focus on ‘capturing’ the world through her various collections; Paris, Italy, Beirut, Costa Rica, Detroit, Santa Monica, Michigan Fall Colors, and many more. Born and raised in Michigan, Laura has a bachelor’s degree from Oakland University in broadcast journalism, and a double minor in Studio Art, focus in photography, and Islamic Studies.
All images are printed on canvas, wood, phone covers, eco-friendly water bottles, mugs, mouse pads, and of course framed, etc. The diversity of subjects and places photographed are stunningly unique, such as the tearing down the old Tiger Stadium, The Fall Colors at The Henry Ford Estate, and the Eiffel Tower.
Laura still has a list of countries she’d like to dive herself into, so please stay turned for updates. If anyone who has any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact Laura Fawaz. We’d also love to hear of what places you’d like Laura to go and photograph next!
