Amy Lee Hochman was born and raised in Queens, New York, where she continues to live today.
She had her very first exhibition (solo) at the Sanford Meisner theater in spring of 1991, and her first group exhibition at the Synchronicity Space in fall of 1994 and then again in the summer of 1995. The winter of 1996 into 1997 featured a two person exhibition again at The Synchronicity Space.
An avid photographer since her teens, Amy has consistently turned back to making images through a lens as a way of expressing herself creatively.
Meanwhile, she has been honing her craft as a professional television editor for over two decades, thereby working with imagery on a near daily basis. And she has always continued to photograph, moving reluctantly from using film to the digital process, which she now not only accepts, but has embraced; relishing an unadulterated joy incorporating digital post-processing into her workflow and then creating the final prints herself to complete the process.
Amy’s greatest passion is for macro and abstract color work.
She has recently begun to show her photography again, in group shows with Soho Arthouse in 2014; The Professional Women Photographers Group in 2015 and 2016; NYCDPW, LACDA, and with Arthouse.NYC in 2016.
