Viviane Sassen : Phosphor – Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) in Paris (France) from October 18, 2023 to February 11, 2024.

Tracing a career spanning more than thirty years, this celebration of the talented Dutch photographer includes vividly colored portraits, landscapes, still lifes, abstract compositions and fashion editorials.

From her early African-inspired work to her more recent experiments in interventionist techniques, Viviane Sassen has gained international acclaim for her striking, dynamic images that explore a range of themes and subjects – from identity, gender and the body, to race, fashion and the environment.

This retrospective book brings together well-known and lesser-known works and includes pieces from her recent series, Paint Studies, in which early photographs are reimagined with ink and painterly marks, and Venus and Mercury, a collection of exquisite photomontages based on the history of the Château de Versailles.

An introductory essay and interview with the artist combine with additional illuminating texts to make this the definitive overview of an important and constantly evolving photographer.
