Lauren Summerson is a photographer whose work centres around portrait and product photography. She uses images to explore socio-political issues such as beauty and the representation of women, in an effort to challenge Western expectations. Summerson believes that society has such a strong opinion on what a woman should look like and what is considered to be beautiful; by photographing everyday objects and materials used by women, she aims to portray the impact the modern world has on the female body.
