About Linda Connor
Celebrated photographer Linda Connor has had a long and distinguished career in photography. With her large format camera, she has traveled in Africa, Southeast Asia, Nepal, India, Turkey, Mexico, Tibet, the American Southwest and Iceland exploring sites that evoke mystery and spirit. She is known for her luminous and iconic photographs and fascination with culturally sacred sites and landscapes.
Since the late 1960’s, she has been teaching in the Photography department at the San Francisco Art Institute as well as exhibiting, publishing and presenting her work nationally and internationally. In 2002, she founded PhotoAlliance, a bay area non-profit organization dedicated to the understanding, appreciation and creation of contemporary photography, and currently serves as its president.
Her work has been the subject of several monographs including: On the Music of the Spheres (1996); Luminance (1994) and Spiral Journey (1990). A compendium of her work, Odyssey: The Photographs of Linda Connor (2008) includes over thirty years of photographs and was accompanied by a nationally traveling exhibition.
