I am fascinated by the discrepancy between the decontextualized image and the experience that made it.

Millee Tibbs

About the Artist


Millee Tibbs’ (b. 1976) work derives from her interest in photography’s ubiquity in contemporary culture and the tension between its truth-value and inherent manipulation of reality. Her photographs often address the fabrication of an ideal of the American landscape. By disrupting the photographic image through physical interventions (folding, cutting, and sewing), her work responds to the miniaturization and domestication of land through photography. Tibbs resides in Detroit, MI and holds an MFA in photography from RISD. She has exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad, participated in a fellowship at The MacDowell Colony and has held artist residencies at the Wassaic Project and the Santa Fe Art Institute.
