Wayne Lawrence is a documentary photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. His work represents a visual diary of his life’s journey, and focuses on communities that mainstream media tends to overlook. Lawrence’s print, titled "Maldiya", comes from his project Orchard Beach, a collection of direct and beautiful portraits celebrating the diversity and community of one of New York City’s most popular waterfront destinations.
Lawrence has exhibited his photographs at the Bronx Museum of Art, The FLAG Art Foundation, Amerika Haus (Munich), the Open Society Institute, and the African American Museum of Philadelphia, among others. His work has been published by The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, TIME, Rolling Stone, Men’s Journal, The Sunday Times Magazine, Mother Jones, Mare, COLORS, and Newsweek. His first monograph, Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera, was released by Prestel Publishing in October 2013. Lawrence’s work is in the private collections of Glenn Fuhrman, The FLAG Art Foundation, MSD Capital, and L.P. Recent awards include The Arnold Newman Prize for New Directions In Photographic Portraiture and the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship. Lawrence participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in 2014.
