RaeLyn Burns Dutra

Setting foot on Block Island over 30 years ago Rae Lyn has evolved through several processes in her photography. Initially, as a student of Rhode Island School of Design concentration was on hand-printed Black & White photographs. Soon after she began hand-coloring those images with oil and pencils and developed the multiple image format for which she is known. Upon graduating from RISD Rae Lyn moved to Block Island full time and has been photographing the Island since. Although still hand-printing ,she has begun to use digital imagery as well, incorporating the old with the new and continuing with her multiple format. Rae Lyn can be contacted directly through the Spring Street Gallery. Consignments and special requests will be accepted for “off season” only.
