“In going about my daily routine, I began to notice that many of the pieces of paper I encounter are actually poems. The paper makers may not have considered their products to be poems, but they speak to me as verse.”

“New Visions” photographer Laura Noel uses photography to examine and recontextualize everyday objects. In her Paper series, Noel documents found pieces of paper of which she is a passerby. There is a happenstance to her process; her chance encounters with another’s discards elicit her intuitive responses.
