After attending La Sorbonne in Paris and Bogazici’s University in Istanbul, Amy 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’s photography has involved many humanitarian projects, her first being “People and Places with No Name” with Michel Comte and the International Committee of the Red Cross. She has worked on “Ushuaia Nature”, a french documentary series about indigenous cultures around the world with Nicolas Hulot, one of Europe’s most respected environmentalists. Lyne has produced many multimedia pieces, including “If I Could Wake Up Tomorrow...”, which addresses the notion of (dis)ability with the participation of Eva Mendes and Richard Gere, to name a few. More recently, her work has involved collaborations with renowned dancers including choreographer Tamara Levinson and Georgina Pazcoguin of the New York City Ballet. Her photographs have been recognized by the International Photography Awards, le Prix de la Photographie Paris, the Black and White Spider Awards, and the International Color Awards. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and festivals worldwide, 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 images were projected against the Old City’s walls. She has two monographs scheduled to be published this year: Grand Central Escalator and Coney Island. Lyne is represented by Flo Peters Gallery in Hamburg, Germany.
