“Reveal then Thyself, O Lord, by Thy merciful utterance and the
mystery of Thy divine being, that the holy ecstasy of prayer may fill
our souls – a prayer that shall rise above words and letters and
transcend the murmur of syllables and sounds – that all things may be
merged into nothingness before the revelation of Thy splendor.”
~Abdu’l-Baha, Bahai Prayers.

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 .
