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.
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
