Desirée Dolron (sold out)

Desiree Dolron, one of the most remarkable figures of contemporary Dutch photography, aspires to an aesthetic of the absolute which combines mystery, violence and perfection.  

Her first series, devoted to religious rituals and entitled Exaltation, Images of Religion and Death (1991-1999), explores everything from trance to mutilation while inventing a style that is both artistic and documentary. Gaze (1996-1998), a series of underwater portraits, seems straight out of a mythological realm at the boundaries of life and death. Xteriors (2001-2006) digitally revisits Flemish painting to create a distant and sacred world which is incredibly strained. The artist pays meticulous attention to the printing of her works which, to her mind, reach their culmination in book form.
