Best of Fine Art Photography: Anne Lynam


There is a sense of voyeurism and mystery in the work of Sydney-based photographer Anne Lynam. Inspired by shadow play and influenced by the genre of film noir, Anne’s work takes the urban context and imbues it with a captivating sense of the unknown. Often, we are made to feel like onlookers with a privileged insight into some unfolding secret – a theme that makes sense considering that, when Anne is not making art, she is delivering mail on city streets.

Anne has a background in film and printing in the darkroom. In her current practice, she combines this knowledge with computer skills, using Lightroom and Photoshop to draw attention to interesting light patterns. Her work is available at Point Light Gallery in Sydney, Art Gallery Ryf in Zurich, and her own website. She will next exhibit at Sydney’s Aro Gallery in July.
