Linda Barsotti’s fine art photography concentrates on exploring fragments, analyzing the surroundings to create abstractions. Removing extraneous surroundings, concentration is placed on the interplay of lines and movement. Modernism is her muse. Linda’s background in Floral Design and Floral Art establishes the foundation for her transition to Photography.
Linda has studied photography at the San Francisco Academy of Art and the College of San Mateo in addition to independent studies at various workshops. Studies included both film and darkroom techniques, digital and most currently experiments in scanning (camera-less) techniques.
Her works have been exhibited in many galleries and published twice in Black and White Magazine. Linda started a fine art photography guild, the Peninsula Photographic Arts Guild, on the San Francisco Peninsula to establish a creative and nurturing environment where photographers can discuss, collaborate on and exhibit new bodies of work.
Linda is currently expanding her portfolio by exploring ideologies in Documentary Photography. Her innate ability to challenge herself produces unique approaches to new work. She has photos of and recorded interviews with Drag Queens. A book combining images and text (their story) is in the making.
