Publisher's Description

For Cuny Janssen’s (b. 1975) sixth publication with Snoeck Verlag, the internationally recognized Dutch photographic artist has chosen to title her new series after a famous Walt Whitman poem, “There Was a Child Went Forth.” Internationally known for her revealing portraits of children within their diverse native landscapes, Janssen presents the viewer with portraits of children from her own city of Amsterdam. In this three-part photo essay, she intertwines portraits of children with bucolic urban parks and neighborhoods. Janssen captures the tentative moment within her young subjects when naïveté is being replaced with worldly knowledge. Juxtaposing natural scenes with images of children pensive or playing in the midst of life, Janssen lulls the viewer into a dreamlike state. Once again the production and design of her limited-edition artist’s book enhances the content, with three separately bound soft folios housing over 100 lush color plates and bound in a delicate hard slipcase secured with a magnetic catch.
