Infrared: The Invisible Made Visible Exhibit Photo Place Gallery

I am very excited to be part of Infrared: The Invisible Made Visible exhibition at Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, VT.

The exhibition will take place from November 8 – December 2.

“Photographing in the non-visible spectrum is both magically haunting and unpredictable. It requires great technical understanding of both capture and post-production. And it takes a great deal of understanding and practice of the craft as well as how the photographer’s specific equipment will capture and interpret reality. Successful IR imagery demands a substantial expertise to master its technical and the aesthetic aspects…” – Laurie Klein, Juror

Happy to have 2 of my images of Kushti Wrestlers in the auction this summer !

Claiming the title of “visual anthropologist,” photographer Terri Gold is celebrated for her infrared portraiture of indigenous cultures and ritual. Influenced by early explorers-turned-photographers, Gold takes her cameras through deserts and remote villages, capturing the diversity that the world has to offer. Her prints of the Kushti Wrestlers from Rajasthan tell the story of this ancient form of wrestling practiced in India for more than 2,000 years. Gold’s work has garnered many awards, is shown in galleries internationally and published extensively.

Still Points in a Turning World

In April of 2017, the Salomon Arts Gallery in Tribeca, New York held a solo exhibit of my ongoing project, “Still Points in a Turning World”. This work explores our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression.

“The central revelation of anthropology is that this world deserves to exist in a diverse way, that we must find a way to live in a truly multicultural, world where all of the wisdom of all peoples can contribute to our collective well-being.” Wade Davis
