Jacquie Maria Wessels - Garage Stills & Fringe Nature
|Author||Xavier Canonne; Jacquie Maria Wessels|
This book features two series of photographs. For her Garage Stills project, Dutch photographer Jacquie Maria Wessels has travelled the world, chasing her fascination for the wondrous universe of traditional garages. In striking garages in, say, Cambodia, Cuba, or Japan, she creates poetic still lifes on the spot with the intriguing and personal objects she finds there. It are the shapes and colours of those mysterious objects that draw her attention. Wessels then turned her camera outside and started to work on her new photographic series 'Fringe Nature': in the immediate vicinity of the garages, she is struck by the nature that endures in the harsh, industrial landscapes on the outskirts of the cities. In some cases, rampant nature even takes over and overgrows the garages.
