Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 13, 2010
Lynne Goldstein’s dramatic and very personal photographs now available to the public through her new e-commerce site: http://www.wix.com/lcgdirect/lynne-goldstein-fotos reflect major influences in her life, especially surviving cancer five times. Her images combine nature, landscapes, asian art, and minimalism with pivotal emotions – anger, chaos, silence, fear, strength, fortitude.
Lynne Goldstein's photos require more than a cursory look. Goldstein refers to them as ‘think photos,’ photos that pull you in for second look. “When you really look at my photos, you may see different things. The shapes may be recognizable. Maybe a little off-center. Not true to nature. You may focus on the subject. Or what the negative spaces represent. No matter what you see, whatever your state of mind, whatever your battle … it’s all how you look at it. What you bring to it.”
Goldstein ’s photographs have had great success at recent gallery showings – The Salon in Philadelphia, PA, Bauhaus in Collingswood, NJ, and Greenshire Arts in Quakertown, PA. Most recently, her photo, “Snow in Square,’ was selected as 1st in show in a competition sponsored by the Friends of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.
In addition to private collections, Goldstein’s photos have also been purchased by businesses and organizations. The Pennsylvania Hospital recently acquired 15 of her photos. In one area of the Hospital where her photos are exhibited, the Joan Karnell Center for Oncology and Hematology, one patient was heard to remark, “When I look at Lynne’s photographs, they just make me happy. More at peace.”
Lynne Goldstein's series of photographs that reflect her history of cancer survivorship – 5 times over have been exhibited at various 2010 cancer survivor celebrations – the Thomas Jefferson Kimmel Medical Center, the Pennsylvania Hospital, and as part of the Lilly on Canvas Traveling Exhibit, just recently in Union Station, Washington, D.C. Goldstein reflects on her art and her life story. “I try to tell my story through the camera lens. My search to transform chaos and anger into something calmer, more harmonious, however, has remained, and probably will always remain, unended.”
Goldstein’s photography portfolio can be viewed at her website at: http://www.wix.com/lcgdirect/lynne-goldstein-fotos for purchase. All photos are double matted and signed by the artist.
