From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Amanda Means (born 1945, Marion, New York) is an American artist and photographer. She received a BA from Cornell University in 1969 and a MFA in Photography from SUNY Buffalo (Visual Studies Workshop) in 1978. In 1976 she attended the Aperion Workshops and studied under Ralph Gibson. She is a master black and white printer having made prints for clients such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Roni Horn, and the Smithsonian Institution. Means has primarily focused on camera-less photography, using objects (such as leaves, light bulbs, and water glasses) instead of photographic negatives to produce her prints. Her work has been collected by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,[1] the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA)[2] the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and Whitney Museum of American Art. She currently lives and works in Woodstock, NY. She has had a special exhibition of her photographs of leaves at the Harvard Museum of Natural History.[3][4]
