Petra Stavast – S75
Through the media of photography, film, and text, Dutch visual artist and photographer Petra Stavast unravels and structures complex social issues, often departing from a seemingly insignificant personal observation. ‘S75’ is a project she named after the Siemens S75, a mobile phone that was launched in 2005. It was Stavast’s first phone which featured an integrated camera, with a maximum resolution of 1280 × 960 pixels. All the portraits appearing in this series were photographed by Stavast using the S75 between 2006 and 2022 in Amsterdam, Banff, and Shanghai. The book is designed by Hans Gremmen.
