The Creator Class: On Set With Photographer Tonje Thilesen

Brooklyn-based photographer Tonje Thilesen shares her fascination with suburban America and how she approaches her work in this lovey profile for The Creator Class’s Canon Creator Lab series. Thilesen’s photos have appeared in publications like Pitchfork, VICE, and Vogue Italia. Here we see Thilesen using her lens to capture mid-century architecture and model Caitlin Frame, all while discussing the advantage of smaller shoots and keeping subjects comfortable.
