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.

Terri Gold photographs performances by the Martha Graham Dance Theatre

I was so happy to see and photograph the dress rehearsal of the spring season of The Martha Graham Dance Company.

“Throughout her career, Graham was fascinated by visionaries and prophets. In ”Spectre-1914,” Xin Ying is a prophet beholding appalling visions of war as she rises tall and awesome in a black robe. She then manipulated the robe to show its reverse side, making her seem encased in a blood-red shroud.” -Jack Anderson

In my infrared interpretation the robe is white and blue…

Performed by Xin Ying.

 

“In “Embattled Garden,” from 1958, Graham—a lover of myth—tackled the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. (The garden is represented by a field of reeds, designed by Isamu Noguchi). ” -from a New Yorker Review

Performed by So Young An, Lloyd Mayor, Natasha Diamond-Walker, Abdiel Jacobsen.

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
