The photograph is the beginning of the process. My technique involves creating imagery using the invisible infrared light spectrum. I shot infrared film for many years. Now, I use a digital camera converted to infrared and the digital darkroom to create the split-toned imagery. Working with infrared light adds an element of mystery when creating the work, which, I feel, suits the subject matter and the timeless quality of the images. The post processing is part of my medium-I work with Photoshop and now I am pouring encaustic wax on the surface of the prints. This creates work that looks similar to a photograph, but at the same time depends heavily upon the intervention of my hand. I was just in a studio in Philadelphia working with the wax and painting the images with oil sticks. The digital images have always seemed a bit too clean for me and I have been looking for a way to put back in elements that may surprise me.
Hope you can join us.

“My ongoing body of work, ‘Still Points in a Turning World’, explores our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression.
“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 an existence that may soon vanish and what it is that makes a people unique. I believe that sharing these stories and rituals can have a positive impact by providing a window on our common humanity.” – Terri Gold, July 2010
