The self portrait is more than just holding a camera away from your face and snapping a way. In Troeller’s work it is a way to understand where we are in life and where we fit in the world. The workshops Troeller is teaching will take students to another level using a mirror, roll playing and creative narrative. Every photo we take tells a story and we can create those stories.
Troeller has led other workshops; at Yale, Bournemouth College (UK), University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Parsons and the School of Visual Arts. Her work has won many awards and she has been exhibited worldwide.
She was inspired into being a photographer by Georgie O’Keeffe. She was an
and assistant at the Ansel Adams Workshops with Adams and Annie Leibowitz and model for such photographers at Lucien Clergue and Eikoh Hosoe.
Her book , Mucalinda- Self-Portrait + Self-Reflection, was released last year.
