Amanda Marsalis is a storyteller, a filmmaker, and a photographer whose work explores and documents human connections. Starting as a teenager photographing the punk concerts she hosted in her parent’s basement, Amanda continues to forge an intimacy with her subjects to create meaningful and beautiful works. In her celebrated twenty-year career she’s photographed everyone from Cate Blanchett to Al Gore, John Legend, Kathryn Bigelow, 50 Cent, Gigi Hadid, Jason Schwartzman, and Angelina Jolie, to name a few. Amanda has always worked to give her subjects the freedom and space to open up and share their essence on camera.
It’s a skill that has translated well from stills to cinema as evidenced by her first feature film, Echo Park, starring Mamie Gummer. Critically acclaimed and selected by Ava DuVernay’s company Array for distribution, Echo Park had its theatrical release in April 2016. Amanda has since moved into the world of television. Her directing work includes episodes of Queen Sugar for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, as well as the season 2 finale of Netflix’s Ozark.
