Lara Solomon is an internationally recognized photographer, published by Men's Fitness, Modern Luxury and The Smithsonian. Born in a youth hostel, she has emerged onto the visual plateau mentored by her industry heros, such as Joyce Tenneson, James Hickey and James Porto. She has worked and exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Miami and Los Angeles. She has trekked the globe working on a variety of projects such as reseaching monkeys with a National Geographic sponsored Primatologist, wine-making on a historical Tuscan villa, and documenting the solar eclipse at the Temple of Apollo in Turkey. A graduate of Appalachian State University's department of Anthropology, her trademark straight-shooter approach is most authentic.
