A Chicago, Illinois, transplant from Austin, Texas, Lindsay Hutchens is pursuing consecutive graduate degrees from SAIC: MFA in Photography, and MA in Visual Critical Studies. She holds a BA in Visual Journalism with honors from Brooks Institute of Photography.

Despite a transition from a reportage based practice frequently documenting bands and musicians touring the US or recording albums away from home, to a contemporary art based interdisciplinary practice steeped in autobiography, Lindsay continues to both inhabit and critique an American nuclear family structure within a narrative framework. Photographic works have been described as, “a very different street photography approach,” (Michael Weinstein, Newcity Art, Chicago), “a lasting impression of bittersweet recollection and hesitant hope for the future,” (Caitlin Greenwood, Austin Chronicle, Austin), “quietly humorous and disjointed in the deadpan style of concrete comedy,” (Julia Hendrickson, Permanent Collection, Austin), and “also kind of funny,” (Bill Davenport, Glasstire, Austin).
