Urban Iconographies

Natalie Christensen is a photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, primarily known for minimalist, urban landscapes and abstractions of the American Southwest. A frequent contributor to online contemporary art and photography magazines including Lensculture and Ignant, and has shown work both nationally and internationally.

Christensen’s 25-year career as a psychotherapist informs her practice as an artist; primarily influenced by the theories of Carl Jung, each image, whilst minimal in their aesthetic, reflect deeper conceptual thoughts. Deep shadows and angular buildings can be interpreted as archetypal phenomena, and the city-dweller – connoted through the camera lens – makes reference to the Jungian notion of separate consciousness.

She has exhibited widely, across Europe and the US, and has been selected for a number of photo festivals and reviews including Belfast Photo Festival and Critical Mass at Photolucida.
