This latest book by Viviane Sassen, one of the world's most acclaimed photographers, explores the concept of shadow in a series of stunning images. Based on an award-winning exhibition, Viviane Sassen's new book focuses on a common theme in her photographs: shadow. In this book she leads us through a series of thought-provoking takes on the concept--shadow as metaphor for anxiety and desire; as a symbol of both memory and hope for the future; and as an evocation of imagination and illusion. Sassen's work is renowned for its deft interplay between realism and abstraction. Here that characteristic emerges in the dramatic use of light, shadow and color, as well as the adroit cropping of images and interventions on the prints. This lovely book brilliantly accentuates Sassen's contrasting color schemes to reinforce the idea of shadow creating an enthralling tactile and visual experience.

Saturated with color and boldly composed, Viviane Sassen's photographs straddle the boundaries of fashion, art, and documentary photography. This monograph by the award-winning Dutch-born photographer Viviane Sassen features photographs from throughout West and East Africa. Sassen's overriding theme is parasomnia, a sleep disorder involving strange movements, behaviors, emotions, and dreams. The otherworldly feel of these photographs, involving both human and inanimate subjects, aptly conveys an altered-consciousness point of view-one that is at home in the pages of a fashion magazine, newspaper, or a modern art gallery. Indeed, Sassen's images have appeared in all three venues to wide acclaim. Sassen's photographic series is engaging and thrillingly beautiful, filled with shadow and ambiguity, and it offers a challenge to the viewers to come up with their own narrative.

In the two centuries that photography has been practical, it has created a means of communication , the understanding of which is essential to anyone navigating this very visual world. From Daguerre's early images to the real-life sharing of Instagram, photography has never really been "the truth," though nor is it necessarily dishonest. It is ambiguous, complicated and subjective, fleeting and lasting at the same time. This book will introduce the best examples and show you how you can 'read' every image.

Tulips, cheese and clogs are put on notice in this survey of contemporary Dutch photography. Gerco de Ruijter hangs his camera on a kite to make strange, abstract landscapes. Marnix Goosens entangles the viewer's gaze in thickets and blocks it with tree trunks rather than presenting the flat panoramas of his Flemish predecessors. Roy Villevoye investigates the colonial past in stills, films and installations on the people of New Guinea. A magazine, Useful Photography, earns its place among artists by lovingly cataloguing vernacular and commercial images. Dutch Dare also includes work by Hans van der Meer, Elspeth Diederix, Gertjan Kocken, Julika Rudelius, Jaap Scheren, Anouk Kruithof, Martine Stig, Viviane Sassen and Marike Schuurman.
