Laura Aguilar (b.1959) is an American photographer born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley. She studied photography at East Los Angeles College and for more than thirty years she has shown her work extensively. Between 1993 and 2005, she was included in more than fifty exhibitions, including La Biennale di Venezia, Aperto 93, the Smithsonian Institution’s International Gallery in Washington DC, and the International Center of Photography in New York City. While Aguilar’s photography renders visible people of color, Latinx and LGBT communities through candid portraits, she is renowned for her nude self-portraiture in nature.
