Tonje Thilesen on making people comfortable as a director and sharing resources as a DIY community

Tonje Thilesen is a Brooklyn-based photographer whose work has been featured in Pitchfork, VICE, and Vogue Italia. Sparked by a fascination with suburban America, she uses her lens to document the mid-century architecture that defined the culture.

We visited Tonje on set (along with model Caitlin Frame from The Drums) to chat about keeping your subjects comfortable and the importance of a close creative community.
