Amy Lombard is a photographer living and working out of Queens, NY, though it’s not unlikely you’ll find her on the road. Originally from Philadelphia, Lombard moved to New York in 2008 to pursue her BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she graduated in 2012. As a documentary photographer her work largely examines the phenomenons and personalities that make up American culture, shifting her lens between subjects ranging from Juggalos, to Paris Hilton, to an alien themed brothel in the depths of Nevada. Her bold and colorful work has landed her clients including The New York Times, VICE, New York Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, TIME, and WIRED, among many others. In 2015, she became one of the recipients of VSCO’s Artist Initiative to complete her series Connected, a body of work documenting the interests and commonalities that bring people together in real life via Internet meetups—ranging from Harry Potter meetups to a nationwide network of stay-at-home dads. In 2016 she was featured as one of PDN’s “30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch”. Most recently, she was honored as part of the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward 2017.
