About Terri Gold

Terri Gold is a seeker, a world traveler to many of the more remote places of the globe who is entranced by peoples so unlike her and her community that one has to wonder at her enchantment. Her luminous photographs, made more otherworldly by the use of special toning and waxing techniques and infrared radiation rather then conventional light rays, show us more than we can imagine and takes us out of our routine lives into realms of the miraculous and the unknowable.
— Harvey Stein, photographer

Terri Gold is an award-winning photographer known for her poetic infrared imagery of people from the remote corners of the globe.  Her ongoing body of work "Still Points in a Turning World" explores our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression.

Terri’s work has garnered many awards, been shown in galleries internationally and published extensively. She had a solo show at Salomon Arts Gallery in April of 2017, and other recent exhibitions of her work have taken place at The Annenberg Space for Photography in conjunction with the "Life: A Journey Through Time" exhibition and at Photo Place Gallery in Vermont. Recent awards include the International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3), and the Humanity Photo Awards.

She is always happiest with a camera or three in her hands.

I am interested in capturing the different ways in which people find meaning in their lives, how an individual explores his or her existence through their traditions, and driven by a compelling need to capture and celebrate them now.

Why Infrared?

From the beginning of her career, Terri searched for a film that could portray the world how she experienced it, with all its mysteries.  After shooting infrared film for many years, she now uses a digital camera converted to infrared and the digital darkroom to create the split-toned imagery.  There is a haunting quality to the invisible, iridescent world of infrared light that touches another dimension, which exists just beyond what our eyes can see. 

Photographing in the non-visible spectrum is both magically haunting and unpredictable.
