Paul de Nooijer Monograph Staged Photography

NOOIJER, PAUL DE - Paul de Nooijer.

Haarlem, Focus Publishing BV, 2007 orig cloth pictorial dustjacket 180 pp 24 x 33 cm first edition text in Dutch and English by Adi Martis and Rik Suermondt important monograph.

Paul de Nooijer(Eindhoven 1943) is no run-of-the-mill photographer. The urge to manipulate the visible world, to wrest everyday reality from it s context and present if in a different guise or from a different angle is a leitmotif that runs throughout his entire oeuvre. He has consistently explored the visual potential of the photographic medium in relation to film, theatre, architecture, painting and sculpture. His eclectic approach, absurdist humour and parody of conventional perception anticipated and inspired Dutch staged photography of the 1980s.
This book, the 13th volume in the series on Dutch photographers published at the initiative of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, offers for the first time a rich overview of Paul de Nooijer's extraordinary photographic oeuvre.
