From Gemma Padley’s review of Laura Stevens’ series “Another November” for the British Journal of Photography:
After Laura Stevens went through a break up, she visualised her emotions in a series of painterly portraits.
“There was this weight and urgency of needing to express what was happening,” says 37-year-old photographer Laura Stevens, recalling the familiar feelings of pain and confusion following the end of significant relationship two years ago, which inspired her series of portraits, titled “Another November.”
“I was paralysed with feelings of loss, and it was as if this project was my escape route, a way to navigate me back to myself,” she says.
“The series is a visual narrative on life after the end of a relationship, exploring how one copes with heartbreak and the loss of love.”
