Amy Osborne is an independent documentary and news photographer based in San Francisco. She is a first-generation college student with BFA in Visual Arts and Media from the University of California, San Diego. Born and raised in a low-income working class home in North Idaho, Amy is interested in topics surrounding class and socioeconomic issues. She is focused in particular on economic inequality and lack of affordable housing in the Bay Area and its effects on the working class and poor. Her photography uses different approaches to realize long-term projects, weaving related stories together from both her current home in San Francisco and her hometown in Idaho. Drawing upon her lived experiences of growing up in constant financial insecurity, Amy is fully invested in the topics she covers and in turn connects deeply with those she is photographing, allowing for a collaboration in spirit and in practice.
