The exhibition “Another Way of Looking at Love” features a suite of 13 delicate landscape photographs by Janelle Lynch that explore the human impulse for connection. Lynch created these images on her property in Cochecton Center, NY from 2015 -2018.
“For some images, I use vantage point to create points of connection with elements from the same species—Japanese barberry or burdock, for example—while for others, I combine multiple species, such as golden rod and pokeweed or burning bush and pine trees,” explains Lynch. “The spaces created represent areas where new realities can be envisioned. The depiction of unity, together with color and light, show the beauty and magic of the natural world.”
The work in this exhibition is part of a series of 25 photographs published by Radius Books in Lynch’s third monograph, Another Way of Looking at Love. The series is currently shortlisted for the Prix Pictet Hope, the leading global award for photography and sustainability. The Prix Pictet exhibition is on a global tour until 2022 and includes some of the works on view at the DVAA. An exhibition of the same title, curated by Laura Vookles, was recently presented at the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY).
Lynch’s photographs are in several international public and private collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Her work has been featured in NPR’s The Picture Show, Photograph Magazine, and The Boston Globe, among many other publications.
She has had one-person museum exhibitions at the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía (Mexico City), the Southeast Museum of Photography (Daytona Beach, FL), the Burchfield Penney Art Center (Buffalo, NY), and the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY). She has had solo gallery exhibitions at Flowers Gallery (London), Robert Morat Galerie (Berlin), and 3 Punts Galería (Barcelona), among other international venues.

In 2003, she completed the Master Class with Stephen Shore at Bard College (Annandale-on-Hudson, NY). In 2013, she received a certificate from The Writers’ Institute, City University of New York, Graduate Center (New York, NY).
