Amanda Levin Artist of the Month Jan 2007

Our Lamma Artist of the Month of January 2007 is Amanda Levin. With her great sense of humour she describes herself as a semi-shameless-self-promoting local photographer, eager for some publicity for her exhibition. Her photos are hanging on the walls of artist-friendly Banyan Bay Cafe right now and are for sale for the very modest cost of $500-700.

Amanda Levin - Photographer:

I am a photographer only in as much as anyone with a camera can call themselves a photographer I have a camera and I take pictures But I like it a lot if that counts for anything. I have a great appreciation for photography and I have always loved to experiment with photos and cameras and in the end that is just what it is: a constant experiment. Sometimes I get the composition just right, some-times it is the light or the subject, other times it is the color. Once in a while, it all comes together.

I am from Northern California I usually say San Francisco because it is easier, but in truth I come from a funky little place called Petaluma. I have been teaching predominantly reluctant teenagers the joys of the Social Sciences since 1994. I love my work and it has been the primary motivation behind my photos. For as long as I can remember I have shared the photos from my travels with my students. My appreciation of landscape photography greatly increased about five years ago while I was working on my graduate thesis with a renowned photographer, Peter Goin, who helped me truly understand the potential of this genre of his art.

In 2005 I ventured to Asia for the first time. I have been in Hong Kong for only about a year, and these photos have been taken over the past sixteen months between Hong Kong, Lamma, Thailand, Lao and the US. These days I am living in Pak Kok with two four-legged friends and another who is mostly on two feet. I have been having a great time here, working, gardening, playing, and occasionally taking some pictures.
