Laura Shehata, Born 1989.

I am by definition a Graphic and Media Design graduate, obtaining a First Class Honours degree from the University of the Arts London. However due to an unremitting interest in film and photography I gravitated toward the camera as my preferred tool and pursued projects which allowed me to explore the boundary between art and film.

The very question ‘Am I an artist?’ is one that I find both crucial and irrelevant. I believe that it is imperative that I ask questions of the work I produce and its context, yet I will not let the answer define me. Whether I am viewed as an ‘artist’ or a filmmaker by others is of little consequence to me. David Lynch, a figure who shifts seamlessly from director to auteur, largely imbued this notion.
