Artist Bio:
Sheri Lynn Behr is a photographer and visual artist with an interest in technology, photography without permission, and the ever-present electronic screens through which we view the world. Her work shifts between traditional, documentary-style photographs and highly manipulated, digitally-enhanced images.

Her project on surveillance and privacy, BeSeeingYou, was exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in 2018 and released as a self-published photo book. Elizabeth Avedon selected it as one of the Best Photography Books of 2018. Behr was invited to participate in A Yellow Rose Project, a photographic collaboration involving over a hundred women photographers in response to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

Behr's work has been exhibited at the Amon Carter Museum of Art, the MIT Museum, Center for Creative Photography, SRO Gallery at Texas Tech, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Soho Photo, and many other venues. Her photographs have appeared in publications world-wide, including Harper's Magazine, People's Photography (China), Orta Format (Turkey), Toy Camera (Spain), and The Boston Globe.

She has received a Fellowship in Photography from the New Jersey State Council of the Arts, a grant from the Puffin Foundation, and a New York City Artist Corps Grant.

And back in the day, she shot rock-and-roll concerts. And Polaroids.
