Meet mindy

Mindy Veissid is an innovative, award-winning international fine art photographer and creator of Art of Intuitive Photography. Her approach to photography focuses on using intuition, vulnerability and trust to show a deeper sense of who she is and what she sees.  Mindy developed her style based on her frustrations of learning photography in a traditional school setting where everyone was taught to do the same thing with limited individual or creative exploration.  Mindy didn’t want to be a follower (or as she puts it, a robot following the demands of others.) She wasn’t interested in the technical perfection of an image – she wanted to to explore and share what her heart guided her to.  Mindy’s intention is that her photos tell a story or a poem, guiding the viewer deeper into her image and to show that it’s okay to be who you are, to trust yourself and your body (intuition.)  Mindy’s photos have been exhibited in the US and Europe and have been published in various magazines and websites.
Mindy published her photo book NYC 2020 A Year Like No Other in 2021, Art of Intuititive Photography in 2016 and is the co-author of Photographers Squared: The Great American Shoot-out published in 2015.
