Elegant Darkness Photographs by Connie Imboden

Elegant Darkness Photographs by Connie Imboden

Connie Imboden has been taking beautifully seductive photographs for over 25 years. Her works are the subject of a recently released book, Reflections: 25 Years of Photography by Connie Imboden, which surveys her extensive creative output. Many of these seminal works are featured in this exhibition. Imboden’s black and white photographs explore the terrain of the human body in images that are both beautiful and mysterious. Some images strike an unsettling feeling for that which is unknown, while others capture elegant abstractions of the figure.

The photographer harnesses the seductive qualities of water, manipulating its reflective nature with dramatic results. Her images are visually perplexing; through the camera lens, Imboden captures the exact moment when flesh and water intersect to create a new visual conundrum.

Connie Imboden teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her photographs are in the collections of the nation’s most prestigious museums including: Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; National Museum of American Art, Washington and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others. She has taught for numerous years at the Maine Media Workshop in Rockport, ME.
