"Though she is an incredibly successful and an influential artist in her own right, it would seem that Laurie Simmons is currently better known as being the mother of the mockingly self-acclaimed ‘voice of a generation’, Lena Dunham. Despite the sudden fame her daughter has received through her Golden Globe-winning TV show Girls, Simmons remains a respected figure within the realms of art and photography. Recognised for her use of mannequins and dolls to substitute humans, Simmons’ work tends to have an eerie feel to it that soon immerses you in a whole host of themes such as the surreal, memories and voyeurism."
