Long before capturing a photograph, Jennifer B. Thoreson enters into a process that includes fabricating abstract objects, arranging architectural spaces, and staging furnishings and models to create deeply personal and engaging pieces.

She lives and works in Albuquerque, NM, and plays many roles, including photographer, teacher, lecturer, and mother. Her work has been shown in collections both nationally and internationally.

The elements she displays in her images, which she caringly selects, creates, and rehabilitates, play as important a role in her art as the finished photographs themselves. Thoreson explains, "when I discover a mundane or unwanted object, bring it into my space, wash it, mend it, give it a careful purpose, bask it in light, and photograph it, I feel as though it has been born again. It is re-purposed."

In a similar way, through her art, she invites the viewer into a process of self-renewal as she explores the intricacies of human relationships and the ways that brokenness can give way to redemption and healing.

You can see Jennifer's work on her website: jenniferthoreson.com.
