    Art Brokerage: Lynn Goldsmith American Photographer: b. 1948. Lynn Goldsmith's imagery is in numerous collections: The Smithsonian, The Polaroid Collection, The Museum of Modern Art, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the permanent collection of Museum Folkwang. She is a multi-awarded portrait photographer whose work has appeared on and between the covers of Life, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, People, Elle, The New Yorker, etc. Her subjects have varied from entertainment personalities to sports stars, from film directors to authors, from the extra-ordinary to the ordinary man on the street. Her forty years of photography have not only been an investigation into the nature of the human spirit, but also into the natural wonders of our planet. Twelve books of her photography have been published. She has been on The New York Times Best Seller list as well as won two Art Direction awards for them. Lynn's professional achievements are in no way limited to the world of photography. She is the youngest member ever to be accepted into the DGA (Director's Guild of America). In 1971, she was the director of Joshua Television, the first company to do video magnification for rock groups entertaining at large venues. In 1973, Lynn directed "We're An American Band", the first music documentary to be released as a theatrical short. In the mid-seventies, Lynn stopped directing to concentrate fully on photography. She has been a consistent contributor to the highly acclaimed series of Day in the Life of books series, as well as many other photography collections. By the early 80's Lynn departed from the worlds of both photography and film, to become the first 'optic-music' artist. Lynn's written songs with recording artists Sting, Steve Winwood, Todd Rundgren, and Nile Rodgers. Her debut album won critical acclaim. As was her plan, the videos from the album which she produced and directed became more than commercials for the record. They were used by the United States Department of Labor to inspire unemployed youths, and by the National Marriage Counsel in England. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has two of the album's videos in their permanent collection as she was among the first to do 3-dimensional computer animation. Though a graduate from the University of Michigan, with a B.A. in both English and Psychology, Lynn considers herself a self-taught artist and entrepreneur. She was the founder of LGI Photo Agency, an organization which represented the work of over two hundred worldwide photographers. Established in 1976, LGI was the first agency to specialize in servicing celebrity portraiture for editorial usage. LGI was sold in 1997 so that Lynn could more fully focus on creating images.
