Amelia Stein

Amelia Stein,was born in 1958, and is a photographer. She lives and works in Dublin.

Her area of expertise has been portraiture, working with actors, performers, playwrights, poets, authors and musicians on commissioned images and on production photography in the Irish Theatre/Opera and Music Industry 1979-2000. Many of these images have had world wide exposure.

Her solo exhibitions address the universal subject of loss and memory, absence and presence. ”Loss and Memory ” shown in 2002 , are the dark and intimate still lives of her late parents personal belongings and household items, where memories imbue ordinary objects with status and meaning. The photographs are in the collection at Irish Museum of Modern Art.
