Photographer #103: Viviane Sassen

Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, 1972, released her monograph Flamboya in 2009. The book combines photographs taken in various African countries. It is a mix of spontaneous and staged photography. She is taken by the appearance or behaviour of the people she encounters. Often one sees a play of shadow and light, where heads might be completely in the dark. In other images she uses objects to cover parts of her subjects body. She uses this style aswell in her fashion and commercial work. She has worked for clients such as Diesel and Miu Miu. The following images come from the series Ultra Violet, Flamboya and Realm.
