Catherine Linder Spencer
Catherine Linder Spencer is interested in history and heritage and the marks that they leave as traces on the visual environment. Whether in her immediate surroundings or in distant parts of the world she has visited, she is fascinated by the ways things used to be. Whether it is a spiritual shrine that has existed for thousands of years, a building from the 1900s or a decaying car in a junkyard, Catherine Linder Spencer’s images embody the soul of who we are.
“My work is inspired by spiritual and architectural sites around the globe as well as my hometown of Buffalo, New York. With my camera, I have studied surface textures, architectural elements, and rusting and fading features which capture the spirit of who we have been as a culture.”
