Coming from a family who produced theatrical costumes, Lara grew up surrounded by creative people. She trained as a photographer and then a journalist, and now specialises in documenting areas of culture that are often considered to be eccentric or endangered. Her first book, Art Workers Guild 125 Years: Craftspeople at Work Today (Unicorn Press 2009), is a collection of portraits of 130 craftsmen in their working environments. Her second book, Harris Tweed, from land to street (Frances Lincoln 2011), offers insights into a lifestyle whose continued existence may surprise many, these portraits are a heartfelt celebration of craftsmanship and a way of life.”
