Coinciding with her exhibition at Martin Parr Foundation, photographer Thilde Jensen will deliver an artist talk around I AM NOT INVisible, an intimate visual account of homelessness in America.
In 2014 Thilde met Reine and Lost, two homeless men in Syracuse, New York. Reine and Lost lived under a highway and had survived three Upstate New York winters, huddled together on a small concrete ledge. This almost unimaginable fact drew her into a four-year project, photographing in Gallup, New Mexico, Las Vegas, and New Orleans as well as Syracuse.
Thilde herself had spent two years living out of a tent in the woods after becoming sick with Environmental Illness. She had been living well and working hard but had not made enough money to cover health insurance and she had no American safety net to catch her.
I AM NOT INVisible is on display at Martin Parr Foundation from 16 SEPT to 19 DEC 2021.
This event is part of our ongoing series sponsored by WEX Photo Video.
