Ami Sioux

Posted by Fabio 28 August 2012

Ami Sioux is a Paris based photographer and musician from California who has shot for Self Service, i-D magazine and Vogue Paris. Raised with wanderlust in her blood, Ami’s youth was spent traveling across Montana, North Dakota and California and at 16 she set out on her own travels. Studying filmmaking and sculpture in San Francisco before heading out to NY, Ami’s path as a photographer began in the 90s, this journey took her onto Berlin and finally Paris. Ami’s work is based on an intimacy, one that demands a certain presence of the subjects in her images. When shooting it’s as if her camera dances with the subject, finding a way to reveal a hesitance or moment where the intention of each person she photographs is bared, present and alive, unveiling that elusive space between public projection and personal introspection. She has released two books of photography, entitled Paris 48°49N and Reykjavik 64°08N respectively.
