“Still Points in a Turning World” at Salomon Arts Gallery

I was so happy to have a  solo exhibit at Salomon Arts Gallery.  My intention for the exhibit was to celebrate cultural diversity; to demonstrate that though we may not see our own customs and traditions in these images, we can recognize our common humanity.

All cultures celebrate the same things. We have rituals surrounding birth, death, good harvests, courtship, family reunions, rites of passage and more…terrigold_stillpoints-4190010


I was really happy to have a number of different events with a multicultural group of friends, family, and art collectors and enthusiasts.  I had a cocktail party one night for the cast of Afrimericans, a scripted show following men and women who were born all over Africa and are now living here, a new emerging narrative about  contemporary Africa. It was interesting to see their impressions of their own tribal cultures. There were people from Nigeria, Sudan, Kenya, Cameroon and more…

I also held a trunk show one day, an event in collaboration with my friend Siamanda Chege and her company Bebe Ravi, and the proceeds were used to help and empower women in Siamanda’s village in Kenya.

I feel I’m completing the circle sharing the work with so many different people and cultures.

Creative Mapping Feature: Images from Around the Globe

Thrilled to have my work presented on Creative Mapping- the creative collective blog.

creative mapping Infrared Photographer Terri Gold

Award-winning, fine art photographer and creative nomad Terri Gold captures her beautiful, other worldly photographs of tribal and nomadic cultures and their rites using invisible light. This light which cannot be seen exists on the invisible part of the spectrum and is captured by infrared sensitive film to reveal a enchanting and poetic under-layer. At home in unfamiliar lands, the wanderlust fueled photographer lives a surreal existence where time and centuries coexist. As an outsider, Gold’s ability to tap into foreign worlds with such an intimacy whilst also emphasising the mystery encapsulated within their rituals and ceremonies is an impressive balance. And her talents are held in great esteem within the photography and creative worlds.

Traveling across oceans, deserts and deep into the bush with up to three cameras in tow along with an ever growing passion and wanderlust, Gold is seeking to shine light on the fragility of tribal cultures seemingly untouched by time; using a light that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

CM: Your work has been published in numerous digital and print outlets, what first garnered notice of your work?
I think the global response to my work speaks to the universal connection that all humans share. The loss of diverse cultures and species is becoming inextricably connected with the development of the modern world. The cultural diversity of our planet is where our greatest creativity lies. Though we may not see our own customs and traditions in these images, it is my hope that we recognize our common humanity. Our challenge now is to keep the poetry of diversity alive…

This year, The International Photography Awards received 17832 of submissions from over 153 countries, and i was happy  to be  awarded Honorable Mention in  two categories -Events People : Culture and Architecture : Historical.

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. 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.
