Laura Allard-Fleischl grew up in New Zealand, moving to London 8 years ago to pursue a career in film photography, videography, and creative direction.

With a cinematic approach to her work, Allard-Fleischl is typically drawn to the great outdoors and low budget hotel rooms. Much of her work reflects her affinity for travel, and is inspired by the people she meets on her journeys.

Besides Odalisque, her editorial work has been featured by the likes of i-D, Dazed, Schön, Harpers Bazaar, Hunger, Wonderland, Gay Times, Interview, and Paper magazine.
