Lara Swimmer Photography

Lara Swimmer shoots on assignment for architecture and design firms around the country and beyond. She incorporates human figures to imbue her images with a sense of humanity, movement, and scale. Lara was a student of film theory and media at the UPENN’s Annenberg School, and at the Sorbonne Paris III, and holds degrees in both Film and French Literature. Lara was invited by the Embassy of the UAE to participate in an architecture delegation in 2019. She was included in ArchDaily’s international list of ‘12 Women in Architecture Photography’ in 2018 and was made an honorary member of the Seattle chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2005. Her forthcoming book, READING ROOM, New and Reimagined Libraries of the American West, will release late 2023 from Artifice Press.
