Light Warriors

( 1 )

Overview

A series of dramatic, up-close portraits of women, all taken with Polaroid's remarkable 20 x 24-inch camera. These striking images are reminiscent of Tenneson's earlier work (Transformations and Illuminations) in their haunting, dreamlike qualities. However, these striking portraits of the female figure, often partially nude, draped in fabric, with unusual headdresses or objects in their arms, illuminated by eerie light, are unforgettable and a bold departure from her earlier work. A must for Tenneson's loyal ...

A must for Tenneson's loyal fans — the photographic, feminist, and spiritual market — and also for a more general audience, capitalizing on her increasing visibility in the fashion field.

    Spiritual and Psychological Portraits of Women

    As the dust jacket suggests, the images in this book would earn an 'R' rating if they were part of a motion picture. They contain female nudity done in an artistic, highly refined, respectful manner. These images are most unusual for portraits, and are very successful. All of the models are friends of Ms. Tenneson, and are not posed by her. Instead, she is trying to create a 'visual diary . . . to probe emotions and inner realities that are . . . invisible . . . .' To do this, 'I asked them what was most important in their lives.' The book contains quotes of what the subjects said, as well as the finished image. To be a spiritual warrior is 'to offer oneself to the world authentically, to flex the courage muscles, to share what it means to be human.' She is open to the whole person, for 'what fascinates me is life's complexities, the darkness as well as the light.' Each portrait is reproduced in warm browns. The foundation of the portrait is a nude image of the model or models (usually mother and child or twins). Then a double exposure is created to superimpose other elements of the subject's self vision. Portions of these images will be light, and will exist as overexposed sections that seem like the sun bursting from the page. The imagery is quite strong, and you will probably find yourself having an emotional reaction to it. That's definitely part of the appeal. You will also feel like you know a lot about each model. Here are my favorites among these wonderful images: Nina Z., Russia; Sheryl and Sef, United States; Rebekka, Finland; Nina B., Germany; Laura and Isaac, United States; Yael, Israel; Marie-Claude, Canada; Jasmin, Australia; Suri, United States; Marisa, United States; Lindsay and Amanda, United States; Jessie, United States; Margarita, Russia; and Sun, United States. How does she see her role as the photographer? 'I just provide a safe place for them to be open . . . .' Who are these women? 'They are pilgrims . . . .' After you enjoy these images, I suggest that you also ask people what is most important in their lives. Even without taking a photograph, you can come much closer and create important bands of connection. What else can you ask that will be revealing and welcome? By being a respectful seeker, you too can be a spiritual pilgrim. At the end of your journey, you may also become a light warrior.
