LYNDA KOOLISH

A Retrospective Exhibit of 45 years

Renowned as a portrait photographer, Lynda Koolish’s earliest photographs focused on women working on the land in Northern California. Described as “elegant and empathic,” her work is “a celebration of us all as writers, artists, musicians, critics, craftspeople, farmers, carpenters, mothers, daughters, sisters, lovers, friends.”

“Over a period of time, I began to understand that a visual celebration of female strength did not necessarily require images of women swinging hammers or axes. I discovered that women's strength could be a reserved quiet presence; the willingness to challenge one another's ideas, the capacity for making choices that are compassionate, responsible and loving.”
