Traditional portraiture collides with modern technology in the photographic works of artist Ulla Skov Jensen.
Reminiscent of the Dutch Golden Age, works like NL1600-Goldenage-DK2018-Aging-ES and NL1600-Goldenage-DK2018-Aging-KP feature older women dressed in 17th Century style attire listening to headphones and playing with smartphones. Caught between time periods, her subjects help us connect to the people of past, reminding us that small technological advances do little to change the substance of life. Exuding confidence and resilience, we get the sense that these women are living their best lives regardless of which time period they call home.
