Entry Description: As part of the human condition, we figure things out whether it is for resolution or moving forward. Everyday we try to find and fulfill ourselves for either mundane or profound reasons. Whether we do it efficiently or in a meandering fashion, our purpose is to expand and improve our quality. But sometimes that expansion is less than blissful. Do we better or harm ourselves? Are we on our own path or someone else’s? Are we addressing the purpose of the moment or beyond? This series, “So Many Journeys”, is a graphic depiction of the search to answer some of these questions, be it for physical, emotional or spiritual reasons.

About the Artist:

Linda Sandow is a Fine Art Photographer focusing on metaphorical, abstract and infrared photography. She expressed her artistic talents early, becoming an accomplished musician, playing with several major opera and ballet companies. Moving on, she developed more analytically, becoming involved with software development for traders at 2 major financial institutions. She then turned to photography and studied at the International Center for Photography (ICP) in New York, The Maine Media Workshops and with John Paul Caponigro at Caponigro Arts. Her photography blends her artistic side with her technological precision. The results are photographs that capture moods and feelings, drawing the viewer into the scene, beyond what is literally there on first hand observation. Ms. Sandow currently lives in New York City where she photographs and exhibits in galleries throughout the Northeast. Her work has been collected internationally. Linda has been in 37 juried group exhibitions since 2006. She has also been published in 5 magazines; in 2013 was a finalist in the Fine Art category of the Pollux International Photography Competition, as well as getting an Honorable mention in the IPA competition. Linda has been a nominee in the B&W Spyder Awards, as well as taking 1st place, 2nd place and honorable mention in 2 NYC4PA International competitions with Black & White and Transportation themes, respectively.
