Amelia Stein lives and works in Dublin. Stein has assembled a number of beautiful and intimate exhibitions including The Palm House, photographs taken in the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin and Loss and Memory, intimate still lives of her late parents personal belongings and household items. Her study of the members of the Royal Hibernian Academy, a book published in 2009, hunted the personality of the artist through a facial portrait, an image of their hands and a study of their chair, or the tools of their practice. Stein is the first photographer ever to be elected to the Royal Hibernian Academy. She is a member of Aosdána. Her work is included in the following collections; The Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Arts Council of Ireland, The Municipal Collection, Dublin, Ireland, Limerick City Gallery of Art, The Office of Public Works, Contemporary Arts Society, Ireland, National Botanic Gardens, Dublin, Gulbenkian Foundation, UK, Athlone Institute of Education, Ireland, The David Kronn Collection, USA, Private Collections in Ireland, Europe and USA.
