Terri Gold has been featured regularly in aCurator since 2010*. Nothing beats seeing a project go from strength to strength and witnessing a photographer stick to their dreams. With that, it pleases me to announce a new exhibition for Terri which opens on April 19th, 2017 at Salomon Arts Gallery in Tribeca, New York.

Kenya. Maasai men making a fire.
Ethiopia. Living in harmony with nature, the Suri daily adorn their bodies with materials from the world around them, using plants, animal hides, clay, and colorfully paint their bodies with these natural pigments.
Kenya. The Samburu men, their faces painted red with crimson ochre and impressive sets of brightly colored feathers swaying atop their heads.
Sossusvlei, Namibia. The winds blow across the land from east and west, forcing the sand upward like ocean waves, and mysterious shadows form.
