I strive to make the forms make sense visually and then trust the poetry or metaphor will follow. Sometimes it does.
– Connie Imboden
“Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.”
“Imboden has created a world masked by darkness and populated by the damned.”
“Connie Imboden’s photographs are psychological conundrums based in a visual language of Jungian process and mythology.”
“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.”
Connie Imboden’s photographs are in the permanent collections of many museums including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The National Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Bibliotheque Nationales in Paris, France, the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, Germany and many other public and private collections throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
Throughout the years, Imboden has shown her photographs in an extensive range of group and solo shows at galleries and museums within the United States, South America, Europe, and most recently China.
In 1993, Connie Imboden won the Silver Medal in Switzerland’s “Schonste Bucher Aus Aller Welt (Most Beautiful Book in the World)” Award for her first book of images entitled “Out of Darkness”. Her most recent book, “Reflections, 25 Years of Photography”, features photos from 1983 to 2009 charting Imboden’s artistic journey and offering new insights into her work and vision.
She taught photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where her experience as a photographer began, as well as many workshops around the world.
Imboden is also the president of the board of governors of the William G. Baker Jr. Memorial Fund. The Baker Fund focuses its grant making exclusively to Arts and Culture and in 2008 initiated the Baker Artists Awards, an innovative online process offering significant prizes to emerging and established artists of any discipline.
