Paul den Hollander Les Pyramides du Nord Photography
HOLLANDER, PAUL DEN / ACHTERBERG, GERRIT - Les Pyramides Du Nord
Breda, Paul den Hollander, 1992. first edition.
When we look at the photographs of Paul den Hollander, we don't see the reality of the photographs that surround us on any given day.
With Paul den Hollander's photographs, we find ourselves in the large room of the third eye.In this room stands a pyramid, and plants grow in it.Every once in a while, someone makes a fleeting appearance. In here, things are very realistic.
There are walls bearing announcements and windows, and through these windows one does not look outside but inside - back into the same room.
The windows aren't mirrors, for the difference between a mirror and the abstract reality of Paul den Hollander's room is the difference between what is seen by ordinary eyes and the third eye.
In here, the light looks at itself. Eddy Posthuma de Boer
