Review on C4 Journal by Eugenie Shinkle

05/05/2021

“To Pick Up a Stone is a study of perception itself – of the nature of our engagement with the world, of the way that photography mediates this engagement, and of the way that the camera, the image and the book form can work together to capture the full intensity of perceptual experience.”

“It’s counterintuitive to think that a photograph might also register other, more subjective sensory information – the so-called ‘secondary qualities’ of taste, sound, smell and touch. But den Boer uses the camera in exactly this way. ‘Photographing is like an intensified act of observing to me’, she remarks. ‘Observing and looking at the landscape is an almost tactile experience; it’s like I can feel the material of the landscape (or stone) by looking intensely.’ ”

A marvelous review by Eugenie Shinkle was published on C4 Journal today! You can read it HERE.
