591PhotographyBlog: 591 Exhibition: Living in Two Worlds – Terri Gold.

I photograph people living in two worlds. The traditions of different millennia co-exist side by side. They are of the present and the past. I am interested in capturing, how an individual explores his or her existence through their traditions. 

Indigenous cultures are disappearing. At risk is a vast archive of knowledge and expertise. I wonder how long these places, rich in their cultural diversity will last, and feel a compelling need to capture and celebrate them now.
