Lynn Goldsmith: The Looking Glass

Multi-award winning portrait photographer showcases intimate study of personal identity through self-portrait photography.

The Parthenon and Centennial Park Conservancy are honored to present Lynn Goldsmith: The Looking Glass, a groundbreaking photography exhibit in which photographer Lynn Goldsmith highlights the psychological relationship between what you see and what you imagine through a series of self-portraits.

The exhibit will be on view in the Parthenon’s East Gallery from Thursday, June 24 through Wednesday, October 13. A virtual highlight tour will be held on the Centennial Park Conservancy’s Facebook page on Tuesday, June 29.

Recently relocated to Nashville, Lynn Goldsmith’s editorial imagery has appeared in and on the covers of Life, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and National Geographic. With subjects ranging from entertainers to athletes to world leaders, she’s photographed the extraordinary individuals of America’s last five decades. Her fine art photography is also included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian, Moma and The Kodak Collection. With a career track-record as a network television director, a recording artist on Island Records, a photographer, and a painter, it is clear Goldsmith’s talents are limitless. The purpose of The Looking Glass series is to experience that anything is possible; that the only limits you have are the limits you put on yourself. 

The Looking Glass portraits are dreamlike, colorful, mysterious, and occasionally irreverent – a reflection of Goldsmith’s creativity, introspection, and humor. Specific to her work are references to myths, fairy tales, film, and literature, which point out how these traditional forms have shaped people’s collective psyches and contributed to the social and political perceptions of women. She invites you to question how and what we see, to consider how your perception is both culturally conditioned and yet always in flux, somehow both predictable and subject to chance.

The Parthenon thanks The Memorial Foundation, the Sandra Schatten Foundation, Humanities Tennessee, Tennessee Arts Commission, Centennial Park Conservancy, and Metro Parks for generously underwriting this exhibit.
