Martijn Doolaard: Crime Passionnel (Signed And Numbered)
Is Martijn Doolaard practising portrait photography with his images from ‘Crime Passionnel’ (and several years ago with those in the series ‘Black Celebration’)? Yes and no, maybe. Here everything is shadow, pit, limbo, substratum, false scent. Forms take shape between the eye sockets and the chin. They are fluid, disappearing back into the darkness. The familiar forms and motifs of the human face dissolve in a bath of black acid. Introduction by Eric Min. Limited and signed edition of 250 copies.
