Terri Gold is an award-winning photographer and artist known for her poetic imagery of rituals, rites of passage, festivals, and portraits from all over the world.
“I am interested in the different ways in which people find meaning in their lives, how an individual explores his or her existence through their traditions. I love the still quality of a photograph that captures a fleeting moment in time. I’m interested in making that moment as beautiful and mysterious as possible.
The differences between our many world cultures are fading away. We all lose when ancient skills and visionary wisdom are forgotten. As a ‘visual archeologist,’ photography has become my way to honor and celebrate rituals and customs that may soon vanish and what it is that makes a people unique. I believe that sharing these stories can have a positive impact by providing a window on our common humanity.”
Her ongoing project, “Still Points in a Turning World,” which focuses on Asia’s vanishing tribal heritage, has been widely exhibited. Recently, she was featured in aCurator Magazine and Lenscratch, and was a winner in the Black and White Spider Awards, International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3), Planet Magazine and London International Creative Competitions.
