Laurie Victor Kay Bio

About The Artist

Laurie Victor Kay’s photography is profoundly informed by her background in painting, as it displays ties to movements including Cubism, Minimalism, Pointillism, Impressionism, and Color Field painting, among others. Marked by vibrant hues and balanced compositions, her images feature a range of everyday subjects, and as an avid world traveler, she seeks inspiration in both the natural world and urban centers throughout the globe. Paris in particular figures prominently in her oeuvre; Victor Kay visits the city frequently, photographing the metro, architecture, people, fashions, foods, streets, and gardens.


For Victor Kay, the images that she initially captures on her camera never constitute the works of art in full. She digitally reworks and reimagines these photographs—for her Kaleidoscope series, for example, she flipped, inverted, and multiplied them—in order to fully realize her dynamic and inspired spaces. Ultimately, Victor Kay aspires to creating open-ended images, and she has explained, “I would like my images to be read, explored, and experienced. I believe a good picture is open to many interpretations. It would make me happy to have the viewer interpret an image in a way that I myself had not been aware of.”


Victor Kay works regularly with her husband, photographer Charles Kay. Their collaborative commissions are included in collections globally, and Victor Kay is a recipient of the Prix de la Photographie.
