THE REMINISCENT LANDSCAPE:
Linda Conner, Banaras, India, 1979
The landscape photographs
of Linda Connor are reminiscent of the romantic and lyrical qualities
found in nineteenth century photography. Her subject matter and methods
are a link to the past, as if an attempt to recapture an aspect of humankind
that has long since vanished.
Connor's somewhat unconventional approach to her photography leads to a unique visual character. Connor uses natural light to develop her negatives, allowing the negative to expose in sunlight on printing out paper.
Many of her photographs were taken in Asia and the Middle East, revealing the cultural differences between these areas and the western world.
