Showground. Photographs by Paul Kooiker. Basalt & Van Zoentendaal Collection, 2004. 86 pp. First and only edition. Stiff wrappers in photo-illustrated dust jacket. 76 black-and-white reproductions.

"Paul Kooiker has published six books:Utrecht Goitre (1999), Hunting and Fishing (1999), Showground (2004), Seminar (2006) Room Service (2008) and Crush (2009). Between 2007 and 2009 he published fourteen issues of Archivo, a bi-monthly photo journal curated by himself and gallerist Willem van Zoetendaal. In his work Paul Kooiker explores various aspects of the theme of looking: voyeurism, shame and distance. His work can be seen as a continuation of an old tradition focusing on the relationship between the artist and the model, the observer and the observed. Kooiker's obsessive collections of images confuse, humiliate and unnerve. They raise questions about a photographer's reason for looking at things and the motivation behind photographing something. The artist plays a game with the viewer, who is confronted with his or her own gaze."--FOAM
