Visiting artist Linda Connor is celebrated for her portrayal of sacred sites and cultures, and for her ability to depict the natural state of places as far flung as, India, Peru, Egypt, Ireland, Iceland, Hawaii and the American Southwest.

She is Professor of Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute and has taught there since 1969. Her formal studies in photography began under the tutelage of Harry Callahan at the Rhode Island School of Design, and later with Aaron Siskind at the Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology.

From the beginning of her career, Ms. Connor has used a large format 8×10 view camera and exhibited contact prints made on printing-out paper exposed in natural sunlight.

Her B&W images are most often made during her travels. Since printing-out paper is no longer readily available, her contemporary images are printed digitally. In addition to the 24 x 30” archival pigment prints, the Goodwin Fine Art show will include an editioned silk-bound book, with several depictions of Buddha included. Connor’s large-scale images printed on a silk substrate hanging from dowels with custom bronze finials designed and cast by Yoshitomo Saito will also be on view.

Connor’s work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Center for Creative Photography, University of Arizona, Tucson; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; International Museum of Photography, George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco MOMA; and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
