Rineke Dijkstra – The Louisiana Book
In her large photographs and films, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra manages to capture people who have stopped somewhere - in a park, on a beach, at a party, in life - so that they are present to an astonishing degree, right there in that very moment.
The artist is typically interested in transitions, the stages of life when we are on the way to becoming ourselves plus something else. Adolecents who stand somewhat insecure in swimsuits on the beach. The dancer who is fully immersed in music at a club. The young person who has put on a military uniform. The woman who has just given birth. . .
