Photographs by Charlotte Dumas.
Charlotte Dumas, 2010. 48 pp., 60 color illustrations, 13x19½".
Selection of this Dutch photographer’s work on animals is comprised of
ten panels beautifully printed on a folded card stock. The presentation
allows for an unfettered relationship with her portraits of stray dogs,
horses, tigers and wolves; animals that are depicted living amongst
humans in one form or another and seem to be solemnly judging us.
“There is a collective solicitude among all animals in these portraits.
They appear to have an awareness of each other, revealing a kinship
among them. Contemplating the place of animals in our world as it is,
this work surveys the specific relationships we have with animals that
define us as human beings.” A limited edition of 100 copies is also
available. Repose is being shown at the Foto Kunst Stadtforum in Innsbruck
thru Nov 6 and at opens at Julie Saul Gallery in New York on Nov 4.
Selected as one of Melanie's Picks on photo-eye Blog. Read the blog post here.
