Vibeke Jensen shows a series of close-up color photographs of different parts of a gun. These lush,
febrile portraits transform the weapon into a potently sexual and unnervingly intimate totem.
Christopher Bollen review, TimeOut New York

The slow, sensual photographs of weapons of instant death contrast to galvanize the viewer and draw
her into the photographic niche, accepting its assumptions and parsing the weapon into its body parts.
James Sherry catalog essay

The focused enlargements subvert ordinary metaphors for what is deadly, dangerous, seductive, lovely,
vital, and further topple what one describes as beautiful, alluring, enticing, perilous, fatal.
Norman Douglas catalog text
