Linda Connor’s world-renowned photographs are global
and sublime. For thirty years she has created distinctively
glowing, contemplative images of nature and religious sites
around the world using a large-format camera and glassplate
negatives. This career-spanning retrospective collects
Connor’s haunting photos, including her renowned prints
from century-old glass-plate astronomical negatives from
Lick Observatory, contextualized by an unprecedented
three-way conversation between Linda and two modern
luminaries, Robert Adams and Emmet Gowin. Published
to coincide with a major touring exhibition, Odyssey is a
long overdue celebration of a modern photographic master.
