Amy Parrish is an internationally-exhibited artist residing in Midcoast Maine. Prior to this she lived in Kolkata (Calcutta), India where she served as Director of Operations and instructor for The Light Space, a program which offers vocational training in photography for young women who have been affected by the commercialized sex trade.
Through the previous decade, Parrish worked as an award-winning portrait photographer and traveled the United States teaching other professionals within the industry. Her work was featured on two seasons of Photovision and awarded "Best in Portrait" for WPPI's international photography competition. In 2014 she shifted her focus from commercial work to very personal, hand-processed image-making. Her fine art imagery has been awarded the Julia Margaret Cameron Award and has received recognition in several other juried selections.
Currently Parrish also writes photo reviews for LensCulture, a global platform for discovering the best in contemporary photography and is working to create a collective of innovative voices working to expand the medium.
