Collection: Lynn Goldsmith


Lynn’s multi award–winning work has appeared on and between the covers of Life, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, Interview, People, Sports Illustrated and many other magazines as well as fourteen books and hundreds of groundbreaking album covers including Patti Smith’s Easter and Frank Zappa’s Sheik Yerbouti. She has written songs with artists such as Sting, Steve Winwood, and Todd Rundgren. In the 1970s she was a director for Joshua Television, ABC’s In Concert, and one of the first directors of the film promotion for musical artists, Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re an American Band.” Lynn was the youngest member ever to be inducted into the Director’s Guild of America. She has won numerous awards for her videos as optic music artist Will Powers. As a fine art photographer, Lynn Goldsmith's oeuvre, shown in museums and galleries worldwide, has received prestigious accolades including but not limited to a Lucie Award for Achievement in Portraiture, The World Press in Portraiture and the Lucien Clergue Award. In the continued development of a body of work she considers to be about breaking with limiting thought patterns, Goldsmith is currently working with her photography in conjunction with mix media painting. An important inspiration in her career was an image made by Judy Dater of legendary photographer Imogen Cunningham with the model Twinka. The eighty-three year old photographer was coming out from behind a tree to photograph the nude, young, beautiful girl. Lynn identified with Ms. Cunningham, hopeful that she too will still be creating art until her last breath.
