Publisher's Description

Out of Print. As NEW. Published for the 2017 Hasselblad Award.

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, 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. In her large photographs and films, the Dutch artist  manages to capture people who have stopped somewhere – in a park, on a beach, at a party, in life – so that they are present to an astonishing degree, right there in that very moment. The artist is typically interested in transitions, the stages of life when we are on the way to becoming ourselves plus something else. Adolecents who stand somewhat insecure in swimsuits on the beach. The dancer who is fully immersed in music at a club. The young person who has put on a military uniform. The woman who has just given birth.
