“"Telling me ’lift up your eyes, breathe, help those who follow your story breath’ you have offered me your revelation.”

— Carlotta Vigliani, Rome

About photo books

From time to time Corinne selects a photo book from her collection and discusses it in a short article.


TIA LIA
Carolina Cattan (2016)

Subtitle of this small booklet that I took home from the Valongo Festival in Santos Brasil, is ‘conto pornográfico’.

Not only are the images wonderfully funny and lighthearted, but also exagarated and playful. The tekst has nothing to do with the imageries, but function as a story in itself. It does give a context though. One that multiplies what is done in the visual!

Ext.-Int.
Raimond Wouda (2016)

A good example of a metaphor that gives the opportunity to look at a topic in many ways: landscapes scenes in Holland and Belgium during a film production.
Our notion of romantic landscapes is turned around while a fiction film tries to romanticize reality at the same time.
 
What a fantastic replenishment to our ideas what our country looks like!
 
Tom Janssen: "Parade", also aims to show our country from a cultural point of view.
 
Also look for Loek van Vliet: "Sacred Grounds, Quiet Areas in the Netherlands and Flanders = Heilige gronden, Stiltegebieden in Nederland en Vlaanderen", if you enjoy the real notion of romanticism
