Amy Touchette explores themes of social connectedness through street portraiture. Trained at the International Center of Photography, she began her artistic career as a writer and painter.
Touchette’s latest monograph, Personal Ties: Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, was published by Schilt Publishing (Amsterdam) in 2021. Images from the series debuted at the National Portrait Gallery in London. One was made into a flag and flown at the Rockefeller Center rink as part of Aperture’s The Flag Project.
In addition to lectures and public talks, she teaches street portraiture in ICP’s Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program and Continuing Education program.
Touchette has written feature articles for PDN, Rangefinder, Emerging Photographer, and Digital Photo Pro magazines, tutorial articles on street photography for Envato Tuts+, and exhibition catalog essays.
