6000 farbige Fotos
An enormous and completely fascinating collection of 'anti-sartorial' photographs of street life by the Dutch conceptual artist/street photographer. From Amsterdam to New York and Paris to Shanghai, these photographs, taken over a period of more than twenty years, provide a cumulative portrait of the people of the twenty-first century. A magnetic panoply of images, this cult object has a
place in the library of every photography book collector as well as anyone interested in contemporary culture. Democratic, apolitical and unique, the archive of thousands of images offers an engrossing and engaging cross-section of society.
For over forty years, Hans Eijkelboom (b. 1949) has investigated the cult of the self, celebrity and the 'man in the street'. Quiet and unassuming and based in his studio near Amsterdam, he has created an extraordinary body of work that questions who we are and how we portray ourselves. His self-published photobooks, numbering over fifty, are collectors' items. His work has been exhibited in Amsterdam, New York and at the Bienal de São Paulo.
