The Lauriston is a local pub in east London where people of all backgrounds feel comfortable to enjoy themselves and most importantly friendly helpful service. It’s a place to have a drink, enjoy great food, good company and have fun.
The Lauriston is a link between the people that Graziela photographed and the idea of the photo shoot was to capture the locals on their own environment presenting them in an intimate light.
Graziela Diez uses the individuality to enhance and beautify each portrait. No visual unity or technical method was used on the shoot. Every photo has been distinguished conceived using only natural light characterizing each one’s personality. There is density, texture differentiating and giving a distinguished personality to each shot.
“Her pictures are intense, deep and unveil the most personal moments of people’s lives. There is not homogeneity respecting the originality and individuality of one’s self.” Roxy Ribeiro.
*Graziela Diez is a Brazilian photographer living in London. Her career focuses on the eccentricity of one’s individuality.
