I am drawn to document architecture, interiors and gardens that represent a wide span of centuries. I look to represent both the classical motifs and the beauty that is found in distressed and decaying structures. The formality of much of the work is guided by the desire for a sense of order and the isolated fragments are abstractions that offer up an element of surprise.

Dale Goffigon's work is largely a result of photographs taken during extensive travels. Her body of work consists of gardens, historic architecture and interiors. She works with a medium format film camera, a Rolleiflex, and a digital Leica and prints the images with a master printer using an archival pigment process.
Born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Goffigon received a B.S. from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. She studied photography at the Parsons School of Design and the International Center of Photography in New York. The artist also studied at the Maine Photographic Workshop and The Center for Alternative Processes. Her work has been published in Connecticut Cottages & Gardens and The Redstone Book of the Eye. Goffigon was also awarded the Best Photography Portfolio at Art Show: Bedford in Bedford, NY in 2016, judged by Peter MacGill of Pace MacGill and Mimi Thompson of Bomb Magazine. She is represented by BK Antiques in New York City and Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, NY. She currently lives in Greenwich, CT.
