Amy Elkins (b.1979) was born and raised in Southern California. She received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her photographs explore notions of vulnerability, identity and transitory states. Elkins’ Wallflower series presents the nuances of gender identity and the male psyche. Her current work turns to the more aggressive aspects of male identity: Elegant Violence looks at Ivy League rugby athletes moments after their game and Black is the Day, Black is the Night, observes masculinity, vulnerabilty and identity through correspondence with men serving life and death row sentences in American maximum security prisons. In 2008 Elkins and Cara Phillips co-founded Women in Photography, a platform for showcasing established and emerging female photographers. She is represented by Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.
