Proverbs 4 by Ruth Thorne Thomsen
Ruth Thorne Thomsen

“For Ruth Thorne Thomsen photography is theatre: 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, Ruth Thorne Thomsen a third generation woman photographer-creates images of the spirits 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.
