Artist Biography

Linda Connor has had a long and distinguished career in photography, and has traveled extensively nationally and internationally to produce her work to places such as India, Turkey, Peru, Iceland, South East Asia, as well as the United States. Using the tools reminiscent of 19th century landscape photography, she creates images that reflect the poetry and mystery of the places. Her photographs contemplate the relationship of the sacred to the natural world. Since the late 1960’s, she has been teaching in the photography department at the San Francisco Art Institute as well as exhibiting and publishing her work. In 2002, she founded PhotoAlliance, a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit organization dedicated to the understanding, appreciation and creation of contemporary photography. Amongst other awards, Connor is the recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts grants and a Guggenheim fellowship. Her work can be found in the collections of Art Institute of Chicago, Center for Creative Photography, University of Arizona, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Victoria and Alberta Museum in London.
