“Seattle-based photographer Lauren Max captures a certain kind of laid-back hedonism that feels quintessentially Northwest.”
—Strath Shepard, Men’s Online Creative Director (and a NW native himself)
Grunge is dead and Twin Peaks is canceled—but 20 years later, we’re proud to say the Pacific Northwest (where Nordstrom was founded and remains headquartered) still marches to the beat of a different drummer.
To say Max’s photography cherishes the unorthodox might be an understatement. Bottom line, the damp landscapes and sardonic looks on her subjects’ faces make us feel right at home. If you’ve never been: Welcome to Seattle.
