Over the years, I saw that the body must be examined, moved, re-engaged, re-found, re-addressed because it is such a powerful route to intimate photographs and a surreal contact with the great beyond. – Linda Troeller

Linda Troeller uses the camera like a tool to activate her own personal shamanistic ritual. A producer of self-portraiture her entire life and now in her seventies, Troeller identifies the moment of making a photograph as one of deep realisation, spiritual connection, and even transformation. Each self-image allows her a more complete understanding of her being. Sex. Death. Transcendence. joins together a selection of these self-portraits spanning her life – in black and white and colour, with traditional film and iPhone cameras – that mark her existence in time. Troeller uses her own aging body and by doing so challenges our notions of what we deem desirable as a culture. Troeller flips her own image on the viewer along with all of its meaning and power and forces us to take a deeper look within ourselves. Darcey Steinke’s insightful essay contextualises Troeller’s individualistic approach to photography.
