b. 1975 Ridgewood, NJ

Justin Nicholas Lane is a Brooklyn, NY, based fine art and editorial photographer. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Alfred University (1997). 

Crossing genres, his photographs employ strong graphic organization often with implicit narratives, seeking to document stories or inspire them in the viewer's mind. They are keenly observational.

Justin's influences draw from many creative disciplines; among them, photographers Duane Michals, Bettina Rheims, Ellen Von Unwerth, Richard Misrach, and Peter Goin, Filmmaker Godfrey Reggio, Composer Philip Glass; and Painter Gary Ruddell. 

Along with commissions, assignments and stand alone pieces, ongoing personal projects include a series exploring memory, desire, and nostalgia (The Fading Affect Bias) and a starkly contrasting landscape series involving cold-war legacy sites and remediated facilities (Fissile). Justin is also a contributing photographer for Daily Racing Form, who regularly feature his horse racing reportage. 

When the camera's left behind, Justin's an avid cyclist, hiker, road tripper and science enthusiast.
