PORTRAITS IN THE CONTEXT OF PLACE
PHOTOGRAPHS BY MARK E. JENSEN 1967-2017
February 24th - July 13th, 2017
In the context of their daily lives, at times people are so visually in sync with their surroundings that the landscape becomes a part of their character creating a symbiotic relationship in which person and place become one. The portraits on exhibit by Minneapolis photographer Mark E. Jensen make the relationship between people and the landscape palpable. His use of light, once noted by author and poet Meridel LeSueur as “very democratic”, provides equal emphasis on both person and place whether city or countryside, home, workplace or on the street. The black and white photographs on exhibit in the Architecture & Landscape Architecture Library encompass fifty years of Jensen’s work.
