Why We Print: 4 Inspiring Women Photographers

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

Welcome to the next edition of ‘Why We Print,‘ our ongoing interview series where we get to know photographers of all kinds to learn more about what motivates and inspires their photography, and of course, create amazing prints and photobooks.

March is National Women’s Month and we want to honor all women. Women typically are the ones behind the lens documenting their day-to-day family life and we want to thank you for realizing the importance of photos and print. But family life isn’t the only reason women snap and print. We visit with four inspiring women photographers who share their reason “why” with us.

Lauri Novak

“There are two main reasons I print my work. Firstly, I’m a traveler and have been traveling since I was young. Printing images from trips allows me to relive those places and moments. I can pick up a photo album and thumb through it and remember what I ate, who I was with and what I felt at the moments those images were taken. Some of those travel photos on my walls have become a quick escape or break from what I’m doing. I can just look over and put myself back in that amazing moment. The second reason it’s important to print your images is to record your family history. As both my parents are now gone, I’m grateful that my mom almost always had a camera. I have a lot (and I mean a lot) of albums and bins to go through but it’s priceless to me to have images from when my parents were young all the way through to their last years. “ Lauri Novak
