Carnival days Paul van der Stap Photography



PAUL VAN DER STAP: CARNIVAL DAYS
isbn 9789078909118   VERBEELDING


For an outsider, the low-lands version of ‘Carnival’ – a collection of, from origin Catholic cele brations, held in the Southern part of the Netherlands and Flemish Belgium at the beginning of Spring - is a strange affair. Normally restrained and sober inhabitants embrace with passion and direct urgency otherwise normally held taboos, outrageous costume designs and wild festivities. Paul van der Stap has been photographing parades and carnival for years and this collection of duotone images, produced between 1996 and 2008, captures some of the notable moments.
128 p ills 110 duotone 24 x 23 Dutch/English hb
