Janelle Lynch




Janelle Lynch is an American large-format photographer who investigates themes of absence, presence, transcendence, and the life cycle in her work. Known for her landscapes of the United States, Mexico, and Spain, in recent years Lynch has expanded her practice to include portraiture and still life. In March 2020, she began Fern Valley, a new project in the North Georgia Mountains.

Lynch’s series Another Way of Looking at Love, for which she was shortlisted for the Prix Pictet 2019, 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. The Prix Pictet exhibition launched at the Victoria and Albert Museum in November 2019 and will continue its global tour in 2021 with venues to include New York, Dublin, Singapore, and Tel Aviv.

Lynch’s work has been widely shown internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía (Mexico City), the Southeast Museum of Photography (Daytona Beach, FL), the Burchfield Penney Art Center (Buffalo, NY), and the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY). Her photographs are in collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Three monographs on her work have been published by Radius Books: Los Jardines de México (2010); AIGA award-winning Barcelona (2013), which also features her writings; and Another Way of Looking at Love (2018), which includes an essay by Darius Himes, International Head of Photographs, Christie’s.

Janelle 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 and Sculpture.
