Statement by the photographer, Erik KESSELS
"People consume photos, but you don't look at them anymore." (freely translated, © Erik KESSELS)
Background information"This richly illustrated book of photographs was published on the occasion of the major Erik KESSELS retrospective at CAMERA. Centro Italiano per la Fotografia in Turin, Italy. 'The Many Lives of Erik Kessels' presents the highly anticipated first overview of this pioneering and influential curator, editor, and artist, whose diverse experiments with photography and photographic archives have allowed us to rethink the media vernacular and narrative possibilities in today's flooded image landscape.
The monograph 'The Many Lives of Erik Kessels' provides an overview of how to better understand and appreciate the hybrid way of working of the Dutch photographic artist Erik KESSELS, who defies categorization. With more than twenty works as well as many essays by Simon Baker, Hans AARSMAN and curator Francesco Zanot." (freely translated, © Aperture 2017)
