“Lift up your hearts above the present and look with eyes of faith into the future! Today the seed is sown, the grain falls upon the earth, but behold the day will come when it shall rise a glorious tree and the branches thereof shall be laden with fruit. Rejoice and be glad that this day has dawned, try to realize its power, for it is indeed wonderful! God has crowned you with honour and in your hearts has He set a radiant star; verily the light thereof shall brighten the whole world!”  —Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, pg. 68.

Lauren does a lot of things. One of them is taking pictures. Another is baking scones. Yet another is spinning large spheres of fire at the ends of two chains. The only one of these she went to school for, however, was photography. She is currently the Visual Director at Lethal Poetry, an Art Editor for Muzzle Magazine, and most recently, a photographer for Loud Loop Press. Find more of her work on Flickr .
