Thilde Jensen was born in Denmark. An early exploration into film making at the European Film College, lead to an interest in photography. In 1997 she came to New York City to study photography at School of Visual Arts. Six years later her life and emerging career as a documentary and editorial photographer was cut short by a sudden development of severe Environmental Illness. She has worked for numerous magazines including Newsweek, Details and ID-Magazine.
Thilde Jensen has recently recovered. The Canaries, her series about Environmental Illness, has been in The New York Times and The Observer. Her work has been shown in galleries in the USA and abroad.
