Photographer Laila Cohen is born and based in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Royal Academy in The Hague. During her studies, she interned at Annie Leibovitz and Ryan McGinley in New York. Drawing inspiration from her French, Moroccan and Dutch cultural background, her work is colourful and dynamic, balancing between fashion, portrait and stills. Investigating the relationship between shapes and emotions, her work is the result of thoughtful and ongoing studies in color, texture and shape, while her documentary approach challenges fashion conventions. Her images are strongly determined by the characters of the people she works with.
