Linda Connor: Gravity
January 16 – March 28, 2017
She is known for her luminous and iconic photographs and fascination with culturally sacred sites and landscapes. Her artwork reveals the essence of her subjects, yielding a sense of timelessness while visually evoking the intangible. She uses a distinctive technique: a large-format view camera allowing her to achieve remarkable clarity and rich detail.
Her prints are created by direct contact of the 8×10-inch negative on printing-out paper, exposed and developed using sunlight. Toned and fixed with gold chloride, the prints have a warmth, luminosity, and delicacy seldom found in standard photographic printing. Connor will visit FMoPA on March 17, 2017 at 6 pm for a special artist lecture regarding the exhibition.
