Emerging Photography Contender: Ellen Jantzen

For Unity of Time and Place, Santa Fe-based photographer Ellen Jantzen uses cunning visual trickery to splice disparate moments into one frame, collapsing our understanding of time as linear and forward-moving. 

To Have and Have Not

To Have and Have Not

Writes Jantzen in her Artist Statement, “Some say, all time exists at once; the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future are regarded as a whole. As always, I am vastly interested in reality... so this cohesion is mesmerizing to me. After spending the last several years immersed in the past I am ready to embrace the future. But as I set out, the past is with me, transformed. All the losses are still there but there is a brightness forming that allows me to see the entirety, the unity of time and place.”
