“In 1994, I was commissioned to photograph the children of asylum seekers as part of an art project, and I went to a refugee centre in Leiden, in the Netherlands. I spent about three days there before starting work.” link to full article in the guardian.co.uk
Welcome back and hello to 2010!
I absolutely love the work of photographer Rineke Dijkstra…and in this article, she sums up her practice, and the reason i think she appeals to me so much when she says about this image: “I improvised a little studio in the corner of the room, and the result was much better. If you don’t explain everything in a photo, the little details become important: the clothing, the chair, the corner of the cupboard.” Absolutely! And when you look at the rest of her work – this is so clear…go on…have a look!
