Interview With Pictory Mag Founder Laura Brunow Miner

Photos Divulge Secrets of Inspiring Women

Laura Brunow Miner created PictoryMag.com one year ago as a place for people to upload captioned photographs to one of her editorial themes. For the site's one-year anniversary, she teamed up with Levis for a special project: Secrets of Inspiring Women. I spoke with Laura, who shared her motivation: "I wanted to do a showcase on women and the unique challenges they face and their success stories."

The photo essays feature strong, spirited women figuring out how to succeed in their own skin. Anyone can submit one captioned photo to the theme "notes on being a women." Laura explained: "Some people were men showing respect for women in their lives, men talking about their amazing grandmothers or friends, and even some women talked about the role models in their lives. It was great to see the diversity." Laura considers the subjects ordinary women who have decided to make their lives exceptional. We're happy to present five of our favorite inspiring photos and stories below. And if you like what you see, check out the whole project here.
