Lynn Savarese

After careers in corporate law and investment banking and a lengthy sabbatical to raise her children and pursue volunteer work for various human rights organizations, Lynn Savarese finally turned to her passion— photography—several years ago. In addition to commercial work and fine arts pursuits, she works closely with not-for-profit organizations to help further their missions through strategic photography projects. As the photographer commissioned for the New Abolitionists project, Ms. Savarese has had the great honor and privilege of meeting and photographing over 200 amazing New Abolitionists and organizing five exhibitions to feature them since 2013.
