Catherine Jansen

Jansen has developed a photographic language (style of working) that takes many images from a single environment, from different points of view.  They are merged together to create an image that evokes the way a human visually, emotionally, and spiritually experiences a scene, in contrast to how the camera records a scene.  She invites the viewer into an alternative way of experiencing visual information, by presenting images without the influence of captions as filters, thus creating an opportunity to just be present with the information, and explore the personal alchemy that is created when we allow ourselves not to label or judge, but rather to simply be with whatever is or wherever we are.
