Reflections: A Lecture by Connie Imboden

"When I first discovered the beauty and complexity of reflections and the human body in1983, I had no idea it would continue to captivate me to this day, 30 years after the first exploration in a puddle of water. I am fascinated by the reflective and sometimes altering qualities of water and mirrors. Photographing the figure through complicated layers of reflections and distortions redefines the human form, creating an entirely different experience of the body.

Though it looks as if it has been manipulated through Photoshop, darkroom or camera techniques, my work is all seen through the camera. I work intuitively, without a conscious goal or an idea of what I want to convey, and Iím often surprised at the unexpected connections to mythology, psychology, and science that have emerged in my work. Through striving to make forms make sense visually, I trust that the metaphor and the poetry will follow.

My visual exploration and creative process has led to the development of images that push beyond traditional boundaries of how we interpret and understand the body and reveal new ways of seeing it. I look forward to sharing my experience with an intuitive creative process, the profound insights it has revealed along the way, and the evolution of a lifetimeís worth of work."

Connie Imboden has taught for over 25 years, as faculty at The Maryland Institute College of Art as well as instructing various workshops throughout the United States, France, the Czech Republic and the United Arab Emerates.  Her photographs have been exhibited in an extensive range of group and solo shows at galleries and museums across the Americas, Europe, and China.  Four monographs of Imbodenís images have been published, and her work has been featured in numerous national and international publications.
