Dabeno Crow is the work of Katya Laroche, photographer, web designer and accessory designer.


Katya LarocheI grew up roaming the forests, catching frogs and watching Star Trek, eyes wide with wonder and fascination at the world around me. I could scarcely understand why humans were so detached from nature let alone why we wore shoes but as I aged I came to appreciate the scientific advancements of our culture and learned to use them to further my own fascination with nature – becoming some kind of nature nerd, with a love for both the world around me and Star Trek.

I currently travel the U.S. with my boyfriend Ross, cat- Susa and mouse – Trevor, in a travel trailer, exploring the forests, mountains and grasslands that this vast country has to offer. We’ve been on the road since October 2009 and haven’t looked back since.

Interests: Animals, films, the weather, my motorcycle, comedy, dystopian books, all kinds of music, veganism.

Dislikes: Dish washers, detached whiskers.
