Within This Garden: Photographs by Ruth Thorne-Thomsen
by Ruth Thorne-Thomsen
Publisher's Description
For Ruth Thorne-Thomsen, photography is theater: the alleged credibility of the photographic image signifies to her a myth by which to palm off fantasy as "reality" while leading us to the kingdom where the human psyche dwells. "Using a pinhole camera she constructed to achieve infinite depth of field, Thorne-Thomsen--a third generation woman photographer--creates images of the spirit's quest for integration. In compositions at once mysterious, witty, and erudite, Thorne-Thomsen deftly employs archetyping, appropriation, and manipulation to invent landscapes where the individual and collective unconscious merge in an alluring and spirited dance."--the publisher.
