Honorable Mention TOKYO-2017 Fine Art / Portrait

American Mosaic

  • Photographer
    Melissa Lynn

My ‘American Mosaic’ series explores heritage and multicultural identity in America. Photographs in the series were taken at cultural festivals and celebrations in America, where heritage and traditions are taught, celebrated and remembered. My goals for the project are to capture the beauty of diverse cultures and to inspire empathy and understanding towards people with different ethnic or cultural backgrounds.

After more than a decade in New York City working as a documentary and portrait photographer for numerous newspapers and magazines, I now live in Colorado where I continue to pursue my artistic passions as a fine art photographer. My photographs have been exhibited in many prestigious galleries and museums across the United States and around the world.
