1st Edition

Landscape 4to. Photographic boards. As new. SIGNED by the photographer to title page. 14 black and white and 33 colour photographs of places (many indoors and all devoid of people) in Indonesia (mainly Java). The are separated by a short story written by Afrizal Malna (in Indonesian en English). *** Wijnanda Deroo was born in the Netherlands in 1955. Her photographs are in collections worldwide, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Her photographs are praised for her singular style: ‘with superb lighting and colours, geometric composition and the absence of humans. In this way, these places become layered reminders of those who have vanished, whether the current occupants or those who inhabited the spaces in their former function. The extraordinary spaces, made restless and dynamic with the saturation of memories, invite us to engage in repeated, careful scrutiny.’ (From the blurb of Places of Memory )
