A professor at Florida Atlantic University and resident of the Florida Keys, Lynne Bentley-Kemp has had a longstanding relationship with the art of photography and its impact upon visual literacy culture. A member of the inaugural Ph.D. class in Comparative Studies at FAU, her dissertation “Recovering Eden: The Photographer in the Garden” analyzed the work of six photographers who possessed a special sensitivity to the American landscape.
In concert with her academic and scholarly roles, Bentley-Kemp works as a fine art photographer conducting technical and aesthetic research in infrared, non-silver and digital photographic techniques. Her work is exhibited nationally and is listed in numerous public and private collections. She is represented by Lucky Street Gallery.
