Amrita Stützle is an Austrian born artist and educator with a focus on lens-based media. Her practice dissects contemporary and historical aspects of identity, exploring gender, ritual, labor, and environmental concerns within her work. She was a 2018 Saltonstall Artist-in-Residence fellow and a 2019 Magenta Foundation top 100 Emerging Photographers winner. She recently won honorable mention in the 2020 Lenscratch Student Prize and has been exhibiting her work nationally and internationally at venues such as the Royal Photographic Society and Les Recontres d’Arles. Her work has been published in The NY Times and Ain’t Bad publications.
After receiving her BFA in Art Photography from the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University in 2014, Stützle has worked at several arts organizations such as Light Work, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Slought, and recently as a graduate lecturer at the ICA Philadelphia. She is currently completing her final year of her MFA at the University of Pennsylvania and will be teaching photography at Penn in summer 2021.
