This latest book by Viviane Sassen, one of the worlds most acclaimed photographers, explores the concept of shadow in a series of stunning images. Based on an award-winning exhibition, Viviane Sassens new book focuses on a common theme in her photographs: shadow. In this book she leads us through a series of thought-provoking
takes on the conceptshadow as metaphor for anxiety and
desire; as a symbol of both memory and hope for the future;
and as an evocation of imagination and illusion. Sassens
work is renowned for its deft interplay between realism and
abstraction. Here that characteristic emerges in the dramatic
use of light, shadow and color, as well as the adroit cropping
of images and interventions on the prints. This lovely book
brilliantly accentuates Sassens contrasting color schemes to
reinforce the idea of shadow creating an enthralling tactile and
visual experience.
