Growing up travelling across Montana, North Dakota and California, Ami Sioux moved to San Francisco at 16 to study sculpture and filmmaking. She started on photography in the 90s, living between New York, Berlin and Paris, where she settled. A musician herself, Ami has photographed fellow female artists Azealia Banks and Lissy Truille for i-D, and most recently shot a portfolio of LA girl bands for The Collectors Issue. Ami also shoots for Self Service and Vogue Paris and in 2012 released a photography book entitled Paris 48°49N. She is also working on a book about Tokyo and will be releasing her first full-length album in spring 2014.
What would you be doing if you weren’t a photographer? Being a metal sculptor.
Secret obsession? Living in Tokyo with my lover in a tower hotel.
