Amanda Means Bio

About The Artist

Means's early photographic work, which she printed in her lower Manhattan darkroom, depicted tangles of underbrush in the countryside, representing the chaotic environment that surrounded her. Now, Means continues to explore the duality of the city and nature by photographing light bulbs, botanicals, and water glasses. She shows how the other worldly soul of nature can be found not only in natural forms, but also in mass produced industrial objects.

She is a master black and white printer having created prints for clients including Robert Mapplethorpe, Roni Horn, and the Smithsonian Institution. Means has exhibited her work at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Harvard Museum of Natural History; and the International Center for Photography.
