REFLECTIONS: A Moment in Time
The images reflected on the surface of a building tell us about the surrounding environment, the lighting at that moment, and the surface on which the image is reflected.
With a particular interest in architecture, I am drawn to buildings that are intentionally designed to create a dynamic relationship with their environment. Buildings with reflective surfaces such as glass, polished steel, and copper are constantly changing with the light. I am fascinated by the way the light abstracts the surrounding environment and creates continually changing images.
It has been a challenge to control the aesthetic qualities of each photograph, and the surprising results are rewarding.
Trelawney Goodell’s approach to photography is influenced by her many years as an art director, developing visual materials for young children. Her publishing experience, which focused on visual literacy, has been a big influence on how she looks through the lens of the camera. She looks for the unusual in familiar settings. Often focusing on small details in a larger picture results in surprising discoveries.
Goodell has exhibited her photographs in juried solo shows at the Cary Memorial Library, Lexington, MA. Group exhibitions include the School of the Museum of Fine Arts annual shows and sale, the Photography Atelier at Lesley University, the Griffin Museum of Photography, Rocky Neck Art Colony, Gloucester, MA., and the Rockport Art Association. Her photographs have been in a number of juried group shows in Lexington and her work is in many private collections locally and nationally.
Goodell majored in art at Connecticut College and graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with a major in fine art print-making. She has studied photography at Lesley University and the Griffin Museum of Photography and taken courses in digital imaging and web design at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
