Janelle Lynch




Janelle Lynch’s work investigates themes of absence, presence, transcendence and the life cycle through the landscapes and waterways of the United States, Mexico and Spain. Her recent work explores nature as a metaphor to consider the personal, societal and environmental consequences of disconnection, and simultaneously, our inherent yearning for connection. Her 2015-18 series Another Way of Looking at Love was nominated for the 2019 Prix Pictet: Hope. The series explores the interconnectedness of all life forms and supports a renewal of human relationships to each other, and to the natural and the spiritual worlds.

Lynch received an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York where she studied with Joel Sternfeld and Stephen Shore. In 2003, she completed the Master Class in Photography, a one-on-one tutorial with Shore at Bard College. From 2015 to 2018, Lynch studied perceptual drawing and painting with Graham Nickson at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting & Sculpture.

Her photographs are in collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; New York Public Library and Brooklyn Museum. She has had solo exhibitions at the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía, Mexico City; the Southeast Museum of Photography, Daytona Beach; the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo and the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers. Lynch has three monographs published by Radius Books: Los Jardines de México (2010); AIGA award-winning Barcelona (2013) and Another Way of Looking at Love (2018), the latter project shortlisted for the 2019 Prix Pictet. 

Lynch is a faculty member at the International Center of Photography, New York and frequent guest lecturer. She writes about photography for Afterimage, photo-eye and The Photo Review. Lynch has received three 8×10 Film Grants from Kodak and several artist residencies. She was a finalist for the Cord Prize; Santa Fe Prize for Photography and Photo España Descubrimientos.
