Northwest Coast artists series

Series consists of photographs documenting Northwest Coast artists and their work throughout the 1970s and 1980s

Jensen first began to photograph works of art for Bud Mintz around 1973 when he was working for Langara College.  Before he opened his gallery she would go to the College to photograph the jewellery and art he had for sale.  Often the pieces had been purchased and he wanted to document what he had sold.  Once he opened his gallery of Aboriginal art in South Vancouver, Jensen would go to the gallery to take pictures.

Through her work with Bud Mintz Jensen met many Northwest coast artists, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal. As she developed relationships with many of these artists, she documented them and their work.

Some of the later photographs of artists were taken to accompany articles and other work that Jensen was doing at the time.
