Rose-Lynn Fisher was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1955. She studied at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, receiving her BFA in 1978; she also studied at UCLA and UCSC. She was trained as a painter.
Fisher's interests have included microphotography, using both a scanning electron microscope (SEM) photography, and an optical microscope; also aerial photography, photographic research in Morocco, and mixed media painting including geometric patterns and collage.
While studying at Otis Art Institute, Fisher began to focus on geometric patterns and sacred geometry (geometry found in sacred art and architecture). Her fascination with geometric patterns has led her to explore them throughout her career. Through her work with SEMs and bees, she began to focus on hexagons.
Rose-Lynn Fisher's use of SEMs for photographing bees has touched on the disciplines of art and science. She compiled her photographs into a book, titled Bee (published 2010 by Princeton Architectural Press).
As another of her larger projects with an optical microscope, in 2008 Fisher began to photograph tears, for the series Topography of Tears. She sampled over a hundred, varying from "onion" tears to a variety of emotional tears.
