Linda Connor is known for her luminous and iconic photographs and fascination with culturally sacred sites and landscapes. Her artwork reveals the essence of her subjects, yielding a sense of timelessness while visually evoking the intangible. She uses a distinctive technique: a large-format view camera allowing her to achieve remarkable clarity and rich detail. Her prints are created by direct contact of the 8×10-inch negative on printing-out paper, exposed and developed using sunlight. Toned and fixed with gold chloride, the prints have a warmth, luminosity, and delicacy seldom found in standard photographic printing.
Connor is the recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts grants and a Guggenheim fellowship. Her work can be found in the collections of Art Institue of Chicago, Center for Creative Photography, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Linda Connor is also the president and founder of PhotoAlliance, a nonprofit organization that supports the understanding, appreciation and creation of contemporary photography.
