Lynn Savarese is a photographer whose work focuses on intimate observation of what she finds passing through the world.

Originally from a small town in Texas, Savarese resided and traveled throughout the world before establishing New York City as her home in the early ‘80s following her graduation from Harvard Law School. After careers in corporate law and investment banking and a lengthy sabbatical to raise her family and pursue professional volunteer work, Lynn Savarese turned to photography in earnest several years ago.

An ongoing student at the International Center of Photography in New York, Savarese regularly accepts commissions for commercial projects from a variety of clients including a prominent NYC event planner, an on-line women's sports clothing company, as well as studio portraiture. She also has a special interest in working closely with select not-for-profit organizations to help further their missions through strategic photography projects.
