Erik Kessels: Talk and Book Signing
Tuesday, May 13, 2008
Erik Kessels (b. 1966, Amsterdam) culled various themes from thousands of found images appropriated from hundreds of different sources and anonymous recorders. Series include The Spanish Woman, featuring photographs taken by a husband of his wife during the years 1956–1968; Twins, featuring pictures of two sisters who always appear dressed in identical outfits, taken in Europe during the 1940s; Dalmatian, where a beloved dog and her owner grow old together while walking through various European locations; and Taxi, which is comprised of photographs taken by a taxi driver of his car and passenger at different “holiday spot” locations.
