Terri Gold Wins Grand Prize in Santa Fe Photographic Workshop “Diversity” Competition

I received the wonderful news this week that I have been awarded Grand Prize in Santa Fe Photographic Workshops’ 2018 “Diversity” competition with one of my favorite images from Ethiopia, a portrait of a Suri family wearing some of their amazing headdresses in the Omo Valley.

With my work, particularly my ongoing series Still Points in a Turning World“, I am always exploring our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression, so this award is especially meaningful to me.

Many thanks to Santa Fe Photographic Workshops for this incredible honor, and congratulations to the other winners and honorable mentions; may we all continue to celebrate diversity together.  Though we may not see our own customs and traditions in these images, it is my hope that we recognize our common humanity.

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
