Juliane Troicki asked if I'd be interested in collaborating on an exhibition.
After hearing her ideas, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me. Photographing inspiring women with MY vision in mind. What could be more fitting? As a society, we need to learn how to support each other. It's important to recognize our own strengths, as well as, the strengths of others. This can be especially difficult for women. I refuse to get caught up in comparison and competition. I'm honored to be collaborating with someone who shares the same values.

Laura's Artist Bio
Laura Schneider was born in Wisconsin in 1980. At an early age, Laura recognized she had something different to offer the world. But, it wasn’t until recently that she realized what’s possible.
She was destined to become an artist, but the road to becoming one was long. Laura is a midwest-based artist who colors outside the lines of life. While earning her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, her passion for photography ignited in the darkroom.
For nearly two decades, Laura has been capturing subtleties that go overlooked by the casual observer. Her perceptive nature gives her work character and revealing depth. She leverages her senses and the natural qualities of her environment to leave inspired, relatable creations in her wake.
She is currently working on Illuminating Women, an exhibition which shines a light on inspiring women in her community. This exhibition is a collaboration of writing and documentary photography. Through storytelling, Laura creates a connection we long for. Illuminating Women will open in February 2020 at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts.
