Amy Blakemore

Comparing the activity of photography to gathering broken bits and lost objects “serendipitously over long walks,” photographer Amy Blakemore creates intimate and emotional narratives from everyday situations and mundane gestures. As a photographer, she opts for low-tech cameras and makes pictures that are slightly blurry in focus, creating a dreamlike atmosphere. Often capturing candid moments of complete strangers, Blakemore has the unique power of taking the unfamiliar and making it completely personal.


Blakemore has shown her work throughout the United States, and internationally for over 30 years, participating in major exhibitions such as the 2006 Whitney Biennial “Day for Night.” She has additionally had several solo presentations at the 2005 Pingyao International Festival for Photography in China, the James Harris Gallery in Seattle (2010), and a 20-year retrospective of her work at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (2009), which traveled to the Seattle Art Museum (2010), and the Oklahoma Museum of Art (2011). For 26 years she has been the head of the photography department at the Glassell School in Houston.
