Lauren Zaknoun is a photographer & fine artist from southeastern Massachusetts. A self-described "photo-surrealist," she creates surreal portraits to bend the constraints of identity and reality. Anxiety, absence, power, & escapism are recurring concepts in her photography.

“Playing god” is an integral facet of Lauren's work, challenging the viewer’s conception of what is real and what is not. A sense of humor and dark whimsy are trademarks of her work.

Lauren's art has been exhibited in New York, Paris, Milan, & Boston.
