Linda Connor has spent more than twenty-five years exploring and investigating exotic and spiritual places. A frequent visitor to India, Mexico, Thailand, Ireland, Peru, Nepal, Egypt, Hawaii and the American Southwest, Connor takes her 8 x 10" view camera on a pilgrimage into our history. What she reveals is a past filled with presence; a past which informs and molds our world today. Among her various images is a photograph of a ceremonial cloth carefully wrapped around a tree trunk in Bali; petroglyphs hidden in the cliff dwellings of Arizona; magnificent star trails captured in Mexico and votive candles meticulously arranged for ceremonial rites at Chartres. Connor's photographs have appeared in numerous books, including Spiral Journey, published for her mid-career retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in 1990. She is the recipient of many awards including a 1988 & 1976 NEA and a 1979 Guggenheim Fellowship.
I take portraits. Recently, I made a conscious decision to simplify the portraits I had been taking. I chose to make simple studies of the head, shirtless with a neutral background - a bust. My primary influence is Roman, the cold marble heads on pedestals I fell in love with in Rome.
