Lindsay Bottos (b.1992) is a Baltimore- based multidisciplinary artist working mostly in photography, video, and poetry. Known for her dreamy, nostalgic aesthetic and work about new media and the internet, Lindsay works as a fine artist, freelance photographer, prop stylist, and creative director on photo and video sets. Their work often explores themes related to identity, body image, and the representation of women in media and popular culture. In 2014, Bottos gained widespread attention for her project "Anonymous," in which she posted unsolicited comments and messages that she had received online on self-portraits. This project sparked a conversation about online harassment and the objectification of women online. Personal experience is the driving force behind their fine art work; especially interpersonal relationships and the ways that experiences are affected by the current digital age. In addition to a variety of publications including Glamour and Seventeen, Lindsay’s work has also been in galleries internationally, as well as features in various news sources, including Good Morning America, Huffington Post, and the Baltimore Sun.
