Rineke Dijkstra: WO MEN

77,00

WO MEN by Rineke Dijkstra, published on the occasion of the Hasselblad Award 2017, focuses on the transition of the female figure in Dijkstra’s works.

The unique design of the book, conceived by Irma Boom in close collaboration with the artist, unites single images from iconic series spanning three decades – juxtaposing them out of chronological order. The approach enables special attention to detail and suggests new ways of looking at Dijkstra’s impressive oeuvre.

Contributing authors: Jennifer Blessing, Rudi Fuchs and Hans den Hartog Jager.

Description

Rineke Dijkstra is one of the most significant contemporary artists working in photographic portraiture. Her large-scale photographs focus on the thematics of identity, typically capturing her subjects at moments of transition or vulnerability.

Working in series, Rineke Dijkstra’s images recall the visual acuity of seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture, offering intimate portrayals of her sitters whilst also suggesting the situated aspects of their being.

Rineke Dijkstra’s investigations in portraiture also include video. Her fixed-camera video studies yield images that appear to be moving photographs, revolutionizing our understanding of the fluid boundary between the still and moving image.
