Amanda Greene is a commercial and fine art photographer from Danielsville, GA. She earned a BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
Greene’s work focuses on recapturing scenes from her Southern childhood. She describes her work by saying, “I am drawn to colors, different ways people are creative, how people decorate and celebrate, produce stands, handprinted signs, grocery stores, plastic flowers, moments of beauty. I like finding creative marks left by people in different settings. These images are mostly taken in my home state of Georgia, many of them in the county where I live. There are some images from other states as well, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Louisiana.”
Amanda's work has appear in The New York Times, CNN, The Bitter Southerner, US News and World Report and many other publications.
