“Amy uses her interest in the natural world, human beings, and images of justice to fuel her work as a photographer.”
Amy Dewan is a photographer and law student who is discovering different ways to support the environmental justice movement at home and abroad. Along with producing a documentary for Project Survival Media and participating in PSM’s student caucus to the UN Conference of Climate Change in 2009, Amy Dewan has photographed for United Workers in Baltimore.
Now, she is working towards specializing in environmental justice law, and in her spare time will photograph key climate events in the greater Washington D.C. area. Amy’s most notable work includes her portraits of environmental leaders after their arrests in front of the White House in 2013 in protest of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Amy grew up in Baltimore, MD and has developed an interest in the environmental future of her community. While a part of PSM, Amy has worked as an environmental education teacher in Baltimore City schools, and as a clean water advocate and community liason for storm drain art projects for local water awareness. Now, as an immigration paralegal, she often sees connections between mass global migrations and the need for environmental justice both at home and abroad.
Amy uses her interest in the natural world, human beings, and images of justice to fuel her work as a photographer. She is a self-taught photographer who is thankful for the opportunities Project Survival Media has presented her with.
Amy takes photos for Project Survival Media, United Workers, and participates in the National Lawyer’s Guild Chapter in Baltimore, MD.
