Tania Franco Klein’s best photograph: lost in the California desert Related Press Tania Franco Klein’s best photograph: lost in the California desert 26 November 2019, The Guardian

Although it’s me in my work, I don’t see myself in it at all. I’m completely detached. The people in the images are characters. There’s nothing biographical in them, nothing of my identity. I see myself as a tool for the work. Self-portraits aren’t a way for me to work out things about myself–if anything they are a way of hiding myself.
