Born and raised in Kimball, Nebraska, United States. Newell’s interest in photography began while observing animal behavior on her family’s ranch and much of her inspiration as an artist emerges from those childhood experiences. Daughter of a large animal Veterinarian, Lennette immersed herself in the surrounding animal kingdom. where her relationship with animals was a peaceful coexistence that was not exploited by dominance.
Lennette’s photographic approach is based on conceptual and aesthetic exploration; pushing the boundaries of storytelling through her discerning creative process. Her strong passion and commitment to the animal kingdom have resulted in bodies of work celebrating the beauty of species diversity while raising social awareness.
Her photographs have been exhibited in numerous locations including Les Rencontres de la Photographie & Galerie Photo XII Paris.
