Amy Osborne is a freelance 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 working-class home in North Idaho, Amy is interested in topics surrounding class and socio-economic issues, focusing in particular on economic inequality in the Bay Area and its effects on the working class and working poor. Her photography uses different approaches to realize long-term projects - weaving related stories together and drawing connections from both her current home in San Francisco and her hometown in Idaho - centering the subject matter within the context of class and income inequality. Drawing upon her lived experiences of financial insecurity and being a mother, Amy is fully invested in the topics she covers and in turn connects deeply with those she is photographing, allowing for intimacy and a collaboration in spirit and practice.
