Join photographer Thilde Jensen for an artist talk around her project ‘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 September to 19 December 2021. This event will take place via Zoom and last approx. 1 hour. You will be sent the link to join on the day of the event by 5:15pm. If you haven’t received it, please contact info@martinparrfoundation.org
