Born in the Bronx, Sheri Lynn Behr studied photography and digital imaging in New York City and began her career photographing musicians and celebrities back in the day. Her rock and roll photographs were featured in Rolling Stone, CREEM and most music publications of the time, and are now collected, exhibited, and still published in books and magazines.
After several years working in the music business, Sheri decided to concentrate on personal work. Her photography projects have explored Polaroid manipulations, New York City's Chinatown, and the iconic Lucky Cat.
Recent work deals with photography without permission and our surveillance society. Sheri's photographs have been widely exhibited, at spaces including the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, The Griffin Museum of Photography, and The Center for Fine Art Photography. They also appear in American, international and on-line publications, including Harper's Magazine, Slate: Behold blog, People's Photography (China), and The Boston Globe. In 2012 she received a Fellowship in Photography from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and in 2018 received a grant from the Puffin Foundation.
