Linda Alterwitz‘s philosophy addresses the constant challenge to keep a balance between the two sides of the brain: the logical and the creative. This duality is apparent throughout the body of her work, starting with her photographic equipment. Alterwitz uses both digital cameras and toy cameras. The high-tech digital cameras produce clear, factual images that are believable and acceptable in our right-brained world. In contrast, images shot on film by the low-tech, simple workings of plastic cameras capture a spontaneous altered world. Alterwitz’s inspiration, the inner workings of the human body and her external surrounding environment, plays with the dance of the two sides of the brain as well as the contradiction of fear and reassurance. Past personal struggles with medical issues were tempered by fond, childhood memories of playing in the sand dunes and forests of Gary, Indiana where Alterwitz grew up. It is this dichotomy that gives her work a comforting sense of familiarity while simultaneously creating tension.”
