About the Item

Hand Signed by Lynn Goldsmith Limited Edition of 20 Lynn Goldsmith's imagery is in numerous collections: The Smithsonian, The Polaroid Collection, The Museum of Modern Art, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the permanent collection of Museum Folkwang. She is a multi-awarded portrait photographer whose work has appeared on and between the covers of Life, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, People, Elle, The New Yorker, etc. Her subjects have varied from entertainment personalities to sports stars, from film directors to authors, from the extra-ordinary to the ordinary man on the street. Her forty years of photography have not only been an investigation into the nature of the human spirit, but also into the natural wonders of our planet. Twelve books of her photography have been published. She has been on The New York Times Best Seller list as well as won two Art Direction awards for them. Lynn's professional achievements are in no way limited to the world of photography. She is the youngest member ever to be accepted into the DGA (Director's Guild of America). In 1971, she was the director of Joshua Television, the first company to do video magnification for rock groups entertaining at large venues. In 1973, Lynn directed "We're An American Band", the first music documentary to be released as a theatrical short. In the mid-seventies, Lynn stopped directing to concentrate fully on photography. She has been a consistent contributor to the highly acclaimed series of Day in the Life of books series, as well as many other photography collections. By the early 80's Lynn departed from the worlds of both photography and film, to become the first 'optic-music' artist. Lynn's written songs with recording artists Sting, Steve Winwood, Todd Rundgren, and Nile Rodgers. Her debut album won critical acclaim. As was her plan, the videos from the album which she produced and directed became more than commercials for the record. They were used by the United States Department of Labor to inspire unemployed youths, and by the National Marriage Counsel in England. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has two of the album's videos in their permanent collection as she was among the first to do 3-dimensional computer animation. Though a graduate from the University of Michigan, with a B.A. in both English and Psychology, Lynn considers herself a self-taught artist and entrepreneur. She was the founder of LGI Photo Agency, an organization which represented the work of over two hundred worldwide photographers. Established in 1976, LGI was the first agency to specialize in servicing celebrity portraiture for editorial usage. LGI was sold in 1997 so that Lynn could more fully focus on creating images. The wide range of Lynn's talents, skills and achievements are products of a belief she holds constant: Creativity is based on breaking limiting though patterns, thus making anything possible. Lynn was recently named as an honoree for an Achievement in Portraiture in the 2020 Lucie Awards. She joins a star studded roster of recipients including, Annie Liebovitz, Judith Joy Ross, Joyce Tenneson and many more.

  • #19, 1970s Nightclubs of Chicago South Side - Rare Vintage Silver Gelatin Print
    Located in London, GB
    A camera is a window through which a photographer interacts with the world, and it's up to the operator to decide whether his camera will be a barrier or a mirror between he and his subjects. In the 1970s, Michael Abramson chose the latter path when he brought his camera to Pepper's Hideout on Chicago's South Side. Following in the footsteps of his acknowledged influence Gyula Halász, a Hungarian photographer better known as Brassaï who became the pre-eminent chronicler of the Paris nightlife he loved so much, Abramson initiated himself into the nightlife of Chicago's predominantly black neighbourhoods. He was very much a part of the scene he documented on film, drinking, laughing, and dancing with his subjects into small hours and becoming as much a part of the atmosphere as the locals who frequented the same nightspots he did. - Joe Tangari (Numero Group, 2009) This series won Abramson a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1978 and launched his career as a photojournalist. Eventually the project resulted in a hardbound book, Light: On the South Side, including the Grammy and Mojo nominated album, featuring Chicago blues...
