This project began last autumn as the season was waning and winter was settling in. Diminishing daylight and colder days led me to turn inward and reflect.
The resulting photographs are a metaphor for the fluidity of relationships and the shifting stages of life. Decisions must be made, opportunities can be lost, but time isn’t always linear, and we come back to where we were.
I use form and content to reveal and conceal the emotions and transitions of the past and future: the gentleness of lingering light; a shadow kissing a house; the velvet caress of a flower; or an awakening breeze.
Although these portraits and images are personal, it is my intention that they offer a path to feelings and experiences that are universal in nature.
Boston native Laurie Gordon explores her surrounding with her camera. Photography allows her to slow down and observe the everyday all around. Gordon seeks the small details and subtleties of light, and she delights in the unexpected alchemy that photography offers.
Gordon has studied photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Arlington Center for the Arts; and the Griffin Museum of Photography. She has exhibited her photographs regionally at the Griffin Museum of Photography and the Gibbs Gallery in Arlington. Two of her photos were recently selected for the juried exhibition, “Capturing the Light”, at PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury, Vermont, showing April 2018.
