Viviane Sassen

"Viviane Sassen's is a dutch photographer who grew up in East Africa and has been taking photographs in that part of the world since she returned in 2002. Sassen’s photographs portray a vision of Africa that is intimate and personal, but also distant and universal as it's infused with memories of her youth, the beauty of the landscape, the kids she used to play with and shanty towns.

She captures a sense of place through bold graphic imagery and highly stylized compositions. Dramatic figures, ominous shadows, and saturated colours take on symbolic meaning, while maintaining an aura of mystery. These archetypal images express confidence and doubt, perseverance and mortality, compassion and desire."
