About Laura

Laura Barth Turner is a photographer living and working in Austin, Texas. She grew up in the giant sprawl of Houston, where she learned to appreciate all kinds of people, places, food, and freeways. After going away to the east coast for 7 years, working with professional photographers, and on the production side of photography, she got fed up with shoveling snow and returned to sunny Austin to get her MFA in photography at UT Austin. She is a teacher, explorer, and lover of new places, old places, food, music, and swimming in every cold or hot spring available.
