Publisher's Description

Dutch photographer, Rineke Dijkstra (b. 1959, Sittard, Netherlands) 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, her 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.

Dijkstraʼs investigations in portraiture also include video. Her fixed-camera video studies yield images that appear to be moving photographs, revolutionizing our understanding of the fluid boundary between the still and moving image.

This beautiful, large-format catalogue is published on the occasion of Dijkstra’s exhibition at the Hasselblad Centre, Gothenburg, Sweden, 11 October 2017 – 4 February 2018.

Rineke Dijkstra is recipient of the 2017 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography.
