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.

The mermaid is an archetypal image that represents a woman who is at ease in the great waters of life, the waters of emotion and sexuality. Traditions and celebrations add rhythm and texture to our lives and provide a genuine feeling of community. I have been photographing the Mermaid Parade for 20 years and it never disappoints. The Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the beginning of summer and the myths of Coney Island.
