Lynn H. Butler, After
Lynn Hyman Butler is an internationally recognized artist, whose photographs belong to numerous public and private collections, most notably the Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Brooklyn Museum; La Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; the International Center of Photography in New York; Red Heart Inc, Kobe, Japan; and the David Rockefeller Collection,Tarrytown, NY. Her work focuses on nature and our relationship to its fragility in our contemporary world. She wrote: "I am motivated by the concern for the environment brought about by human relationships to the land that threaten those relationships." For Bosom Bodies, she contributed a personal narrative, which coincides with the theme of our exhibition. Within this group, Buffer Lands demonstrates lenticular photography, which produces different images as the viewer moves from left to right to left in front of the picture.

Lynn H. Butler, Peace
The fact that Lynn created an image of peace as a woman on horseback relates directly to her working method as a photographer: "From the Camargue in France to Sleepy Hollow in New York, then from the Maine coast to California, I searched the countryside by horseback to construct a plea to witness and conserve what is unique about the natural world. I photograph while in movement, mostly from horseback." From this perch, the artist finds her evocative subjects that she transforms, through the process of photo development, into imagery reminiscent of Impressionism.
Lynn has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants. Most recently, she received one from the Ministry de Culture, Espace Malraux Scene Nationale de Chambéry et de la Savoie, France; Best Art Photographer, Newsweek, Selection for I.C.P. Infinity Awards; and First Prize, Washington Thoroughbred Associated Art Show, Seattle.
