Photographer Ann Ginsburgh Hofkin recently shared with us the debut of her new website. Bequeathed with her beautiful works in both black & white and color, Hofkin’s portfolio is worth a viewing to any that haven’t taken a chance to look at her work.
Ann studied philosophy, mathematics, and music at Mount Holyoke College and earned a master’s degree from Bryn Mawr College. In 2001, she was among several individuals selected to participate in a cultural exchange to work with artists in Israel. Ginsburgh Hofkin has had eight solo exhibitions of her photography in Israel, as well as one-person shows at other venues such as the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum in South Hadley, Massachusetts; A.I.R. Gallery in New York City; Weill Art Gallery at the 92nd Street Y in New York City; Sande Webster Gallery in Philadelphia; and Nina Bliese Gallery in Minneapolis. She was named a finalist for the Adi Prize for Jewish Expression in Art and Design and was featured in its exhibition at the Israel Museum in 2005.
Hofkin’s Artist Statement:
When I fell in love with photography, I embarked on a wonderful journey of discovery. Photographs are distillations of perception and experience, and they frequently make use of metaphor. Imagination and reality operate together. It is this union that directs my work. What we know-or what we think we know-will most likely evolve over time in much the same fashion that a kaleidoscope shifts its design when the eyepiece is rotated. Colors and shapes may change, positions of pieces may vary, but the same essential rudiments are there all the time. And, since each of us has a series of “holes” in our respective existences, we seek to fill these in our own way. How we do so is one thing that makes each of us an individual. My photographs of dramatic cloud formations, sinuous bodies of water, voluptuous land formations, or sensuous trees and foliage articulate my appreciation for the mystery inherent in our world.
