Having studied photography at the University of Michigan, Lynn Renee Persin has been a part of the Chicago photographic community for over 20 years. Her work has been exhibited at the now defunct Around the Coyote festivals in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood where she picked up a curator’s choice award from Tricia Van Eck, then the associate curator for the Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition she was a chosen artist for The Artist Project, an exhibition that accompanied Chicago’s Art Expo in the Merchandise Mart.
Currently Lynn supports her family in her chosen career of photography, partnering with local non-profits to provide event and marketing photography. Her work is often featured on billboards and bus stops throughout the city and surrounding suburbs, and she spends her evenings photographing fundraisers, her daytimes photographing school programs, and in the summer you can find her up at summer camp hanging out of a canoe with two camera bodies strapped to her chest. And in her free time you can often find her setting up a picnic in the park with her husband, 8 year old son, and her dog named, “Sox.”
