"The images are seen through the camera, they are not manipulated in the darkroom or computer. My intention has always been to explore the body, not alter it. I want to find the camera angle from which the forms can be the most that they can be-whatever that is. If it is a grace to the limbs, then I want the angle from which that grace becomes the absolute most it can be at that moment. I strive to make forms make sense visually, and trust that the metaphor, the poetry will follow."

Imboden has shown her photographs in an extensive range of group and solo shows at galleries and museums throughout the United States, South America, Europe and China. Connie Imboden's first book entitled "Out of Darkness" with essays by Charles-Henri Favrod and A.D. Coleman, won the Silver Medal in Switzerland's "Schonste Bucher Aus Aller Welt (Most Beautiful Book in the World)" Award in 1993. Her most recent monograph, "Reflections; 25 Years of Photography" , was published in 2009 by Insight Editions with essays by Arthur Ollman, Julian Cox and John Wood. She currently teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where her experience as a photographer began.
