Natalie Christensen, Minimalism in Photography, The Original by publisher teNeues
you can’t get there from here, Natalie Christensen

SANTA FE, NM.- Cover artist, Natalie Christensen is a fine art photographer living in Santa Fe, New Mexico whose work is featured in teNeues Books’ newest release MINIMALISM IN PHOTOGRAPHY, The Original.

Photographer Natalie Christensen’s focus is on banal peripheral landscapes unnoticed by most - commonplace architecture and streetscapes deconstructed to color fields, geometry and shadow. “Sometimes I get a glimpse of the sublime in these ordinary places.” Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and influenced by her 25 years as a psychotherapist, her work favors psychological metaphors. “The symbols and spaces in my images are invitations to explore a rich world concealed from consciousness, tapping into something deeply familiar to our experience; often disturbing, sometimes amusing…unquestionably present.”

teNeues Publishing Company states: Minimalism in Photography, The Original is one-of-a-kind: the definitive work on minimalist photography. Featuring international newcomers and established minimalist fine art photographers.

Minimalist artists such as Maria Svabova, Maarten Rots, Matthieu Venot, and Natalie Christensen borrow their motifs from everyday life. They can be schematic depictions of topography, or purely two-dimensional, abstract compositions. Sometimes they are detailed, sometimes large-scale. The point is always reduction.

The minimalist photographer’s eye directs the viewer’s gaze to the aesthetics of the ordinary, transforming them into something extraordinary, something inspiring. Photographic objects are reduced to the essentials as an alternative to the chaos of the world. The resulting photographs always use clean lines, often arranged in geometric compositions.

For devotees of the minimalism trend and all those who want to give their eyes a break in our cluttered world. We live in turbulent times, which arouses a longing to pare down to the essentials in many people. The trend towards minimalism is reflected in the worlds of home living, environmental awareness, and mindfulness, to be sure, but it is also reflected in art and photography.

The editor, teNeues Publishing Company of Düsseldorf, Germany, is represented by ACC Art Books, one of the world’s leading publishers and distributors of books on the arts and visual culture.
