Melanie Einzig is an event photographer based in New York. With a background in art and photojournalism she brings a love of aesthetics, an interest in people and the ability to identify the key dramatic elements of the events she documents. Melanie works very quietly and unobtrusively in order to record the most genuine moments in a natural way. Whether for her personal work, a publication, for an institution, or at a private event, she brings her full attention (eye and heart) to making the best possible photos. Her favorite events to cover are exhibition openings, lectures, gay weddings, musical performances, intimate family gatherings, bar/bat mitzvahs and the events of everyday life.
Melanie’s pictures have been printed in books about photography, in many national and international publications as well as in annual reports and newsletters for institutions and organizations. Here are some recent samples.
Her personal work has been exhibited internationally and selected photos are part of the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, SF Moma’s e-space as part of the Blue Dot (one of the first art sites on the web), the Brooklyn Historical Society and other private collections. She received the Aaron Siskind Foundation fellowship for her work titled Midtown displayed at Zone Zero. Midtown displayed at Zone Zero.
