Here’s an odd thesis that formed in my mind today: every photograph we take is a selfie.
But not really odd. We actually do stamp ourselves onto every photograph. How we see things, what we choose to focus on, what emotions we elicit in the person photographed, how silent we are in our art to allow the other person to speak through us.
Thilde Jensen is a remarkable photographer who looks in the corners most of us would avoid. She’s lived in those corners, has a comfort and a compassion there that infuses her photographs with deeper meanings.
