Lori Pond grew up in the shadow of Mickey Mouse’s ears in Anaheim, California. She
received a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University in Music Performance/Spanish and a Master of Arts degree from USC in Broadcast Journalism. Lori lives in Los Angeles, where she works as a graphic artist on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show, “Conan.”
Lori’s award-winning photography has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally
and internationally. Her work resides in the permanent collections of the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, CO, The Center for the Arts in Los Angeles, CA and at Morgan Stanley headquarters in New York and San Francisco.
Her body of work, “Menace”, looks at our fears and reactions to our fears when looking at things that are new and unknown. Lori had a solo show featuring this work at Gallery 825 in 2015. She painted the walls black and commissioned a composer to write an underscore which played throughout the run of the exhibit.
For the past three years, Lori has been creating “Bosch Redux,” making images directly inspired by Hieronymus Bosch, whose most famous work is “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” She studies details from his paintings and recreates them as photographs, hiring models and prosthetics/props/costume designers to accomplish this. This series has been featured in online blogs such as “LENSCRATCH”, “Adobe Create,” “Flavorwire,” “El Hurgador” (Spain), “Dangerous Minds,” “Shadow and Light,” “Neatorama” and “Mental Floss.” “Bosch Redux” has appeared in print in “Seeing in Sixes,” a LensWork publication.
