Lois Youmans’ photography is rooted in the exploration of the human condition, very often using damaged antique dolls to metaphorically illustrate her concepts. She uses a variety of alternative techniques in her work that reflect her love of antique processes. Her work has been shown internationally, with several solo exhibitions in New York, Italy, and Korea. She is a founding member and past president of fotofoto gallery in Huntington, NY. She is also a member of 9 East Contemporary Art Guild in Huntington, and Soho Photo Gallery in Manhattan. Youmans holds an MFA degree from Long Island University and is currently teaching photography at several Long Island colleges.
