Melanie Einzig is a 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 moments of any kind of event. She 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, Melanie brings her full attention to making the best possible photos. Along with the events of everyday life, she loves to cover exhibition openings, galas, performances, intimate family gatherings and bar mitzvahs.
Her 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 organisations. ‘At a time when staged narratives and rendered images are popular, I am excited by the fact that life itself offers situations far for strange and beautiful than anything I could ever set up.’ I found her work in a book called street photography now. Where it talks about the narrative of an image and how real life is so much more creative than something that can ever be falsely created within the world we live in.
