Overview

Linda Connor's world-renowned photographs are global and sublime. For thirty years she has created distinctively glowing, contemplative images of nature and religious sites around the world using a large-format camera and glass-plate negatives. This career-spanning retrospective collects Connor's haunting photos, including her renowned prints from century-old glass-plate astronomical negatives from Lick Observatory, contextualized by an unprecedented three-way conversation between Linda and two modern luminaries, Robert Adams and Emmet Gowin. Published to coincide with a major touring exhibition, Odyssey is a long overdue celebration of a modern photographic master.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

For more than 30 years, Connor has traveled the world and photographed surreal landscapes and exotic structures in India, Indonesia, Turkey, Cambodia, Egypt, Tibet, and the American Southwest. More than 140 of these images are included in this oversized picture book, which accompanies a touring exhibition. Made with a large-format camera and vintage printing techniques, Connor's work evokes an ethereal, spiritual quality. The power and complexity of her images are the topic of a transcribed conversation with legendary Emmet Gowin, Robert Adams, and Connor herself. This conversation is a valuable collection of insights about Connor's influences as well as her place within the larger canon of fine art photography. Presently, Connor is professor of art at the San Francisco Art Institute. For part of her long career, Connor worked extensively with printing antique astronomical photographs as noted in the featured critical essay by William L. Fox. Her earlier works include On the Music of the Spheres: Photographs by Linda Connor, Poems by Charles Simic(1996) and Solos: Photographs by Linda Connor(1979). Recommended for all collections.
