Connie Imboden

This body of work is the culmination of a two-year sabbatical, which has resulted in a collection of images that is the crown of her achievement to this point. All of the threads that she has been pulling for twenty years have been gathered and woven into a fabric of exquisite visual and emotional sophistication.

American photographer Connie Imboden has investigated the figure through water and reflection, sometimes using mirrors which are scratched and seen through, while being reflected on, creating illusions that articulate the complexities of the human mind. The water images, which use the reflection on the under surface of the water, serve to reform the body, opening up new views to the oldest known subject matter.

It is the methodology that really defines this body of work. Over a period of more than twenty years the progression of images that have been discovered through the lens of this photographer’s camera, have served to confront, titillate, disturb, and even arouse. Her unforgivable curiosity has left a record of many powerful and complex images, which have been acquired by collectors and museums all over the world.
