Adjunct Instructor

Lynn Saville earned a B.A. from Duke University and an M.F.A. from Pratt Institute, where her thesis show consisted of black and white night photographs.  Saville has published three monographs: Acquainted with the Night (Rizzoli, 1997); Night/Shift (Monacelli/Random House, 2009), and Dark City: Urban America at Night (Damiani, 2015). Saville’s archives were acquired by the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University. Her recent retrospective exhibit, which inaugurated the new photography gallery at Pratt Institute, received this high praise in The New Yorker: “There’s a long, rich history of New York photographers working at night, from Berenice Abbott to Joel Meyerowitz. Saville joins their ranks with these pictures …” Saville teaches photography courses at NYUSPS in the Center for Applied Liberal Arts.
