Troeller has taken self-portraits since she was a young woman and has been asked by other photographers to be their subject. Very often Troeller takes self-portraits to re-enter her life, feel an emotion, and verify that she is here. She recognizes that photography enables her to feel strong and reclaim herself. She uses the camera as a method for healing, and through her work she overcomes her weaknesses. These images function as a conduit for tearing herself apart and rebuilding her self-esteem. Knowing and accepting who she is, how she looks and what she wants—is very important to her as a woman. For Troeller, a photograph could be radiation or it could be radiating. She likes the dual aspect. It allows her to reflect on things that take her forward or give her pause. There is a sense of timelessness and daydream.
During her career Linda Troeller received very prestigious awards such as ‘ Pictures of the Year Award’ for the book “Healing Waters” by Aperture. Linda also was named ‘Woman of Achievement’ by Douglass College, NJ and received the ‘Ferguson Award’ from the Friends of Photography, San Francisco for the “TB-AIDS Diary”. The book “Erotic Lives of Women”, Scalo, was called “one of the gutsiest books of the decade” by the New York Times. Linda’s photographs have been exhibited around the world and are in major collections.
The show will be held at Miami's Art and Design District, one of the three hot spots at Art Basel/Miami Beach.
