About Linda Troeller

Linda Troeller is a renowned and award-winning photographer who has dedicated the majority of her artistic career to personal, women’s and social issues. Her latest work “Personal Opera” tackles subjects she has been exploring for most of her career, such as gender, humanity, emotion and aura. She has refined her ability to capture the human body, arranging the human body to best promote these questions of truth and self. Her portraits dare to delve beneath the surface and face the questions of personhood. There is no subject she will shy away from, and the confidence is palpable. She is the star of her “Personal Opera.”
