Not long after young Dutch photographers Anouk Kruithof and Jaap Scheeren graduated from art school, they were featured in a newspaper series on the future of art-school graduates which was titled The Black Hole. For Kruithof and Scheeren, who were determined to make a name for themselves as photographers, that title became a theme for an ambitious project: a series of photographs on depression, black-outs, the Universe and actual “black holes.” The result is this multi-dimensional publication, in which pictures relate to each other in ever-changing variations, filling the “black hole” – no matter how you define it – in new and surprising ways. This fresh, innovative publication was the first winner of the Unique Photography Prize awarded by HUP Gallery Amsterdam.
