For Amy Bark, photography is more than a passion; it is a daily ritual. She has been creating photographic images for over thirty years. Utilizing her first manual film camera (a Pentax K1000) to look at the world through her own lens; starting a conversation that stops time and a dialogue that is endless. Her primary focus is creating bodies of work that speak to the interconnectedness of the human experience and the world that surrounds us.
Working in custom labs/photo-processing for over twenty years, she learned the technical skills of the darkroom and traditional photographic methods. She has taught classes and workshops in everything from Basic Photo 101 to alternative processes (VanDyke, Platinum/Palladium, Cyanotype, Salt Prints), as well as pinhole and plastic cameras. Adopting and developing with digital camera technology as it was introduced, she has continued to explore digital photography’s ever expanding capabilities. She now works in the realms of both digital and film as the situation presents itself.
Amy Bark is a graduate of the historic photography department at the San Francisco Art Institute with a Degree in Fine Art Photography and multi-genre presentation. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows since 1997. Upon completing her degree, she worked in the San Francisco fine art industry as Registrar at Robert Koch Gallery and Director of Operations at Connect Art Intl. She currently resides in Mobile, Alabama where she is developing two new bodies of work. She is also actively working to strengthen the art community of her hometown, while rediscovering and exploring the region of the Southeast.
