Viviane Sassen takes many polaroids, for her it’s a way to explain her work to the people she photographs. This book seems to be the b-side project for Flamboya. Well, not b-side, complement project.

Viviane Sassen, Flamboya


Contrasto, 2010. Bought during Kominek

Back in June, a friend of mine told me about this book. I think I had seen it on the web, but didn’t pay attention. She told me how much she liked the design of the book, with the cut pages that let the reader see part of the next picture / spread. And of course, if someone tells me about a book, I need it.
