Marcia Treiger

Marcia Goldner Treiger

"When all is for real, and nothing is for certain" has been the concept I conceived of early in my photographic career as an artist. I see the world in layers of reality. There exists a sacred geometry among shapes, colors, and the empty spaces between them, which comes from past lives and the experiences that shadow our lives. Existence becomes a wakened dream state of questionable reality."

Marcia Treiger's challenge with photography has always been to overcome the objective reality of the camera. Photography is inherently an unreal perception of time and space. After an image is captured, we have to ask ourselves which is more real: the photograph or the actual memory of the moment in time. Photography, like all art, remakes and even restores our perception of the world.

Blending traditional techniques and contemporary concepts is a fascination for Treiger. She revisits early photography techniques such as camera obscura and pinhole photography and integrates them with original processes. She is also inspired by cyanotypes, a basic handmade emulsion from the 1860s. Thematically driven concepts include shooting the ordinary in extraordinary ways. The theme of illusion and questions about reality prevail in all her works.

Marcia Treiger graduated from Moore College of Art in 1974 with a BFA in fine art photography. She received her MFA in photography and graphic arts production in 1976 from Tyler School of Art. She has had many exhibitions and her work is featured in several permanent museum collections.
