We are thrilled to share this feature story with you: Machines: The Better Angels of our Nature by Larry Lytle of Black & White Magazine. The editorial covers the work of Jennifer B. Thoreson and three of her series: Baptism, Flora, and Medic. Lytle underlines overarching themes in the artist's work.
Though religious in expression, her photographs don’t espouse a particular dogma. Instead, they entreat us to consider the ideals of absolution, reconciliation and compassion. The underpinnings of religion become a way for her to include the viewer rather than exclude them. By avoiding popular culture as the keystone of her concepts Thoreson “plunges more deeply” into the multi-layered and complicated relationship between man and machine, man and God, or man and nature. These ties become the basis for an introspective, yet universal passion play of her scripting and design. - Larry Lytle
