Laura Hynd is a Scottish photographer who moved to England at an early age. Hynd attended Art College and completed a degree in Graphic Arts and Design. She worked as a Creative Designer before moving to London to work as a photo editor for several years. She left to pursue her love of making photographs in 2005. Hynd's approach is natural, honest and organic with a twist of sumptuousness and humour, all of which reflects her personality. She concentrates on people and the living landscape. Hynd has photographed for editorial clients including Telegraph Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Stella,Seven, Independent Magazine, Independent Sunday Review, and Countryfile, amongst others. I love her editorial work and portraits. She really has this simplistic nature to her work. I also really like the series of photographs she did showing plants in formaldehyde. It was simple and beautiful to look at. It also had meaning behind it.
