Judy Morris Lampert has lived in Atlanta since 1954. In the mid 1990’s when Judy was in her late 30’s she took a painting class and made photographs from which to paint. The camera turned out to be more enticing than the paint. In her early 40’s she started photography classes at the Southeastern Center for the Photographic Arts. In the beginning the graphic element of plants and rust captured her interest and then interiors. In 2000 and 2001 she traveled to Bosnia with Art Reach an international program. During this trip she took photographs that she ultimately exhibited at The Rialto and the Gwinnett Children’s Arts Museum. In 2003 she traveled to Burkina Faso and mounted a one person show of that work at the North Georgia College and State University, Hoag Gallery in Dahlonega and later part of a two person show at Milliken Art Gallery in Converse College. She has most recently participated in group exhibitions at Agnes Scott College and Swan Coach House Gallery. Her work has been collected throughout the South. Lampert’s subtle and personal approach to photography conveys a deep respect and honor for the individuals that she portrays. Her photographs reveal an engagement that reaches beyond mere portraiture and photojournalism to divulge a deep sense of observation and commentary.
