Claiming the title of “visual archaeologist,” photographer Terri Gold is celebrated for her infrared portraiture of indigenous cultures and ritual. Influenced by early explorers-turned-photographers, Gold takes her cameras through deserts and remote villages, capturing the diversity that the world has to offer. Her 2014 print, Hamar Family in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia, frames the four figures in a twisted wooden proscenium, the infrared film highlighting the details in their adornment and facial expressions. Gold is the winner of numerous awards, among them the Prix de la photographie.
