The library's Pine Gallery hosted an opening reception on Saturday for local teacher Laura Warren, whose photography will be on display until June 29.
Warren, who has been a special education teacher for more than 15 years and currently teaches in Franklin Lakes' resource program, uses photography as an artistic medium for healing. Her award-winning work aims to capture the beauty and simplicity of the ordinary.
Warren became interested in photography after losing her husband to colon cancer and surviving her own battle with breast cancer. She received a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation fellowship to study digital storytelling at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and has since gone on to win numerous local awards and become vice president of the Ridgewood Camera Club.
Wayne Robbins, of "Inside Fair Lawn," caught up with Warren on Saturday to talk with her about her photography.
