Laila Cohen is a freelance photographer born and based in Amsterdam. Her work is engaged, vibrant and dynamic, balancing between portraits, fashion and stills. Laila’s work is the result of thoughtful and ongoing studies in colour, texture and shape, whilst her documentary approach challenges fashion conventions.
Her fascination goes out to those who embody an in-betweenness as they move between identities, cultures, and structures. Investigating the relationship between people and their surroundings, her intimate and engaging portraits run the gamut of heritage,
belonging, gender, and the ambiguity of being a human.
Her work has been featured in Vogue, Neu Neu Media, and Metal Magazine and she has worked with companies like Mercedes-Benz AMG, Ace & Tate, and adidas Originals.
