Amy Holmes George is a fine art photographer and former tenured professor of photography and digital media from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. During 2008, George completed a Fulbright grant for a rephotographic project titled Double Vision: A View of Florence Past & Present, which is based on the private collections of the Fratelli Alinari photo archive in Florence, Italy. Retracing the steps of the Alinari, George visited significant sites within the city of Florence, re-photographed them from the same point of view using today's digital technology and then printed the images in platinum/palladium, paying homage to an historical photographic process commonly employed during the time of the Alinari.
George is on the Board of the Texas Photographic Society and has served as Chair and Treasurer on the South Central Regional Board of the Society for Photographic Education. Her work has been featured recently at the Martin Museum of Art in Texas, Soho Photo Gallery in New York City, Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in California and the PingYao Annual International Photography Festival in China. George holds an MFA from Clemson University and a BFA cum laude from Miami University.
"With the medium of photography transitioning so rapidly to digital, I am even more compelled to continue working in alternative photographic processes."
