A widely published photographer and author living in New York City, Lynn Gilbert has documented for the first time: New York City children from different socio-economic backgrounds; pioneering women of the 20th century; traditional houses of Turkey, a significant part of that country’s cultural heritage.
CHILDREN IN REPOSE
This series captures the individuality of children from more than 100 families
of varying socio-economic backgrounds in New York City in the mid 1970s.
THE SILK ROAD
“Lynn Gilbert has documented an area of society that no one has photographed before. Her intimate “portraits” of interiors along the Silk Road are powerful, mysterious and elegant. Whether these portrayals are of the poorest homes or ones of luxury, the rich thread that holds them together is natural light that illuminates, frames, and links all her images. There is a freshness in her vision.”
Spencer Throckmorton, Throckmorton Fine Art
“Stunning images. Cultural insight. Lynn’s work goes well beyond landscape and architecture. Like Walker Evans before her, Lynn dives beneath the surface, telling the story of a people through images of how they live and work in traditional interiors. More than travel photography, this is cultural anthropology as art.”
Marie Simon, GHP Media
Women of Wisdom: Talks with Women Who Shaped our Times contains the rich oral histories of forty-two pioneering women from the 1920s to the 1980s in the arts and sciences, athletics and law, mathematics and politics. They share how they found their passions, overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Surprisingly these women’s backgrounds are no different than yours or mine.
The combined stories provide an historic perspective of the women’s movement in the 20th century. These stories will captivate, educate, and inspire you.
WOMEN OF WISDOM
Billie Jean King, who created opportunities for women on the tennis court and in the workplace, and who continues today to champion social change and equality around the world.
WOMEN OF WISDOM
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who continues to contribute to civil and women’s rights as a U.S. Supreme Court justice.
My paint brush is my camera. Natural light illuminates, frames and links all my work. I find beauty in what is real.
