Laura Levine's eclectic background as a cross-disciplinary visual artist has led her to pursue a variety of projects in independent filmmaking, photography, television animation, fine art and illustration. Her iconic music photography portraits have appeared in countless magazines, album covers and books, as well as dozens of exhibitions, photography anthologies and published collections of fine art photographs.
From 1980 - 1995, Levine's career as a music photographer enabled her to work with everyone from Björk to James Brown for magazines such as Rolling Stone, The New York Rocker (where she was Chief Photographer/Photo Editor), and Sounds UK. She directed music videos for Lisa Germano and Giant Sand, and worked with R.E.M. and other Athens, Georgia musicians on the Super-8 underground film, Just Like A Movie (1984).
In her spare time, Levine, who grew up in New York City's Chinatown and graduated from Harvard University is the proprietress of Homer & Langley's Mystery Spot, an unusual antique/ junk/oddities shop in Phoenicia, New York.
