A FILM ABOUT NYC ART PHOTOGRAPHER: LINDA TROELLER

In this digital age when nothing is new – only new interpretations, her images are rare, vitally present, surviving as a window to an era of photography fleeting by. Like an impressionistic painter from another time, her photographs evoke the moment as seen through the memory of it. My film on her asks, “How does she so instinctively capture sensually charged images? What is ecstatic, what is real, what powers emit from in her images to ‘stay’ in our consciousness? The film uncovers how she made up her unique style from a High School Prom queen to photo model for landmark photographers, Ansel Adams, Lucien Clergue and Eikoh Hosoe to forty years as a veteran photographer enraptured by TB, AIDS, sexuality

and the erotic, and a sense of place and culture in her Chelsea Hotel artist’s home.

Recently two of Troeller’s photographs were selected as  first and second prize in the American Lucie Photography Awards in NYC. Over twenty-two thousand entries competed for this distinction. As a veteran photographer of forty years, Troeller is exceptional. In a business which can crush the creative fire as quickly as it can be lit, she continues to focus on the world behind her closed eyes – her imagination, realized as photographs.

This film was shot back in 2005 and 2006. I am ‘still’ in the process of completing it.

The trailer for the film is here…

It will be a very fun film, and it will be done soon!
