Minneapolis: (self-published), 2016.
In 2016, photographer Carrie Elizabeth Thompson published Notes from My Therapist, a book of photographs that throws open the door to her life in relationship with others. One of these others is Thompson’s therapist, who takes portraits of the photographer during their sessions together. The portraits by Thompson’s therapist accumulate in the book, creating a compelling chronicle of emotion, process and ultimately, privacy: we never overhear what happens in the room (although we see handwritten notes for Thompson from her therapist). We never see an image of her therapist. We only know that the photographer and the therapist are deep in the work, together. Item #19894
