Review in PhotoBook journal

2021/01/29

“Stones, rocks, and mountains come in endless sizes and shapes and are composed of a variety of materials. They are the building blocks of the earth, its very foundation. Leave it to Claudia den Boer, an innovative photographer with a sense of place, to photograph these “stonescapes” and to work with a talented designer and production team to combine them into 120 fascinating pages in an unconventional and appealing presentation.” — Gerhard Clausing

“This is a book that communicates with the user not only through the visuals, but also by eliciting the viewer’s additional participation. The lifting of sheets, peeking what is behind them, and around them, causes a participatory stance to evolve: there are no essays in this book, only stones, rocks, and mountains for your visual and tactile journey. The absence of essays and other texts causes the viewer to confront and sort out the visuals on his or her own, without explanations or analyses by others. Makes you rethink your relationship to the earth a bit … a highly recommended assignment.” — Gerhard Clausing

Happy with this review in PhotoBook journal, contemporary photobook magazine, on my work and photobook To pick up a stone, by Gerhard Clausing. You can read it HERE.
