Melanie Einzig is a Street photographer. Melanie was asked to provide images in the following three disciplines: Conceptual, Self Portrait and Animal.
"I grew up in Minnesota and developed an early interest in art and poetry. I moved to New York in 1990 and pursued an advanced degree in photography, but ended up experimenting with filmmaking and computer generated images. Shortly after graduating I worked for the Associated Press in New York where I began photographing in color. In 1997 I received the Aaron Siskind Foundation fellowship for my work titled Midtown.
My images have been exhibited in the US and Europe and included in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's e-space, and the Brooklyn Historical Society amongst others. My photos have been printed in several books including Bystander: A History of Street Photography (Bullfinch) and Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson) and New York in Color (Abrams). I am part of the street photography collective in-public."
