Thursday, March 22, 6:30-8:00pmConnie Imboden has spent more than 30 years using photography to examine, distort and redefine the human body.
Imboden's work is in the collections of many major museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, the Bibliotheque Nationale in France and the Ludwig Museum in Germany. Her photographs have been exhibited in an extensive range of group and solo shows at galleries and museums throughout Europe, the United States, South America and most recently China.
Her first book of images, Out of Darkness, won the Silver Medal in Switzerland's "Schonste Bucher Aus Aller Welt (Most Beautiful Book in the World)" competition in 1993. Her most recent book, Reflections was released in 2009.
Imboden currently teaches photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art as well as many workshops around the world.
Imboden's photographs, seen through the camera and free from darkroom or computer enhancement, display the strangeness of reality in an age of digital manipulation. She will discuss the technical issues involved in relying on her vision to transform the subject matter and how an intuitive creative process has kept her fascinated with the same body of work throughout the years.
