Amy Lyne is a freelance documentary photographer, whose work focuses on social issues that tend to be overshadowed by the headline news. After attending La Sorbonne in Paris and Bogazici’s University in Istanbul, Lyne received her BFA in Photography from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, as well as her BA in Art History and French Literature. Lyne has exhibited in galleries and festivals throughout the US and abroad, including the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, the Benaki Museum in Greece, Les Rencontres d’Arles in France and the Sounding Jerusalem Festival, where her work was projected against the Old City’s walls. Lyne has worked on various humanitarian projects, including a collaboration with Michel Comte on “People and Places with No Name”, benefiting the International Committee of the Red Cross’ activities in Angola, Ethiopia and Afghanistan. Lyne has also collaborated with Nicolas Hulot, one of Europe’s most respected environmentalists, on “Ushuaia Nature”, a television series about indigenous cultures around the world. Lyne has produced many multi-media pieces, including “If I Could Wake Up Tomorrow…”, which was commissioned by the Emotion Pictures Festival, and addressed the issue of ability with the participation of Eva Mendes, Danny Boyle and Richard Gere, to name a few. Lyne is currently working on a long-term project about the residents of New York’s Bowery Mission, as well as a book on Coney Island. Lyne is represented by Flo Peters Gallery in Hamburg, Germany.

“Photography celebrates life and shows how beauty, dignity and hope can be found in the most unlikely places.”
