About

Lyric City is a joint collaborative effort from Brooklyn-based photographers, musician Tim Peck and writer Melissa Wyse.

Tim and Melissa have been collaborating on photography projects together since early 2014. At the start of that year, Tim gave Melissa an old Pentax film camera and a challenge. She would take photographs around her neighborhood in Baltimore, where she lived at the time, and then send the film up to New England, where Tim would develop it. Tim had no control over the compositions Melissa sent him, and Melissa had no control over the creative choices Tim brought to bear in the darkroom. This collaboration proved serendipitous and freeing. And we just kept going. Through our lives in Baltimore, New England, and now Brooklyn, New York, and through all our travels. Our collaboration has evolved, but photography continues to be one of our great shared joys and adventures.

In addition to his life as a photographer, Tim is a composer and musician. His most recent album, Rivulets, original jazz compositions performed and recorded by the Tim Peck Trio, is available here in our shop. Tim has held artist residencies at VCCA, Moulin à Nef in France, and Willapa Bay AiR in the Pacific Northwest. You can find Tim's upcoming performance schedule, plus additional news and updates from the studio, on his website at tpeck.com.

Melissa is a fiction writer, essayist, and art and cultural writer. Her work can be found in The Rumpus, Shenandoah, Momus, and other publications. She has held residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Ragdale, and VCCA, and she is a past recipient of the Ruby Grant for individual artists. Her first book is forthcoming from Chronicle Books in 2020. You can find her website at melissawyse.com or follow her blog at starlitnights.org.
