Full Biography

Lora Moore-Kakaletris

After spending ten years as an Occupational Therapist, I returned to school to study commercial photography. Photography has become my creative outlet. My passion. I put my heart and soul into each and every photographic project. My art shares the story of my ambition and success, but more importantly my failures along the way. My inadequacies, screw ups, insecurities and secrets. My creative work has been featured in solo and joint exhibits nationwide, magazines and online publications. Recently her work was awarded for Best Overall Submission at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, and was chosen as a finalist in the Critical Mass Awards 2015.

Artist’s Statement

Lora’s life experiences have brought her to a place where she finds herself driven to create art about who she is, what moves her and what she feels. Her beautiful and dramatic works are filled with personal energy and emotion.  After the traumatic loss of her mother at the young age of twelve Lora suppressed most of her thoughts and feelings until she picked up a camera in her late thirties. Often building  sets by hand to create  intimate, emotive and evocative self portraits, or plunging below the water’s surface, she creates  images that reflect ideas and emotions that viewers are drawn to regardless of their personal journeys. Her images have an intentional painterly quality that gives her work a distinctive yet unique look, often blurring the lines between painting and photograph.
