Terri Gold Wins Grand Prize, Featured as Cover Artist in Shadow & Light Magazine

I am so honored to win the Grand Prize for Shadow & Light Magazine’s special March/April edition, Color It Red 2019.  The issue features work from some of my favorite tribal expeditions.

Having just returned from an amazing trip to the Turkana region of northern Kenya, my imagery was filled with color.  Though I am known for my infrared photography, I was very inspired by the challenge presented by Shadow & Light’s Color It Red competition, since I always have a color camera with me too, and was thrilled to have the work so well-received.

My work is truly about discovery, both while traveling and in creating the images. I think of my work as magical realism.

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.
