9781597110440: Hans Eijkelboom: Paris-New York-Shanghai

Dutch conceptual artist Hans Eijkelboom's work is very much in line with the deadpan, seemingly mechanistic note-taking of Ed Ruscha and Hans-Peter Feldman. In "Paris-New York-Shanghai," Eijkelboom creates a witty comparative study of three major contemporary metropolises, each selected for having been the cultural capital of its time--Paris during the nineteenth century; New York, the twentieth; and Shanghai, the twenty-first.
This uniquely bound three-volume accordion-folded set opens up to allow the reader not only to view each city individually, but also to compare simultaneously the three photographic studies of each metropolis and its citizens. The large-format cityscapes with the identifying quirks of each city and the snapshot-style grids of their inhabitants soon reveal how similar one city is to another today. For example, Eijkelboom's grids of mothers carrying their infants in Baby Bjorns, or men wearing striped polo shirts highlight the ubiquity of many of our most intimate possessions. As Eijkelboom writes, "Globalization, combined with the desire of cities for visually spectacular elements, is leading to the appearance everywhere of city centers that look the same and where identical products are sold." With an introduction by Martin Parr.

About the Author:

Hans Eijkelboom was included in a 1971 group show with Joseph Beuys, Ed Ruscha, and Douglas Huebler. Since then, he has produced over twenty-five books, many of them self-published. His work has been exhibited in solo shows at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam; Museum of Modern Art, Arnhem, the Netherlands; Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands; Provincial Museum of Photography, Antwerp, Belgium; and Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim, Neuenhaus, Germany. Eijkelboom is based in Amsterdam.

Review:

"The sequencing is such that if you turn to the same page number in each city, you'll find comparable situations, with some witty and fascinating variation." --Photo District News

"It's fascinating to see how different men dress in similar camouflage-print clothes in New York or in Shanghai, and how identical girls wearing T-shirts look in Paris or New York." --Foam: International Photography Magazine

"The natural urge to contrast and compare quickly reveals cultural, sociological and anthropological prejudices in the reader and the inevitable conclusion that we are a very small planet dominated by a pretty uniform race of humanoid creatures." --Photoicon

"The large-format cityscapes with the identifying quirks of each city and the snapshot-style grids of their inhabitants soon reveal how simliar one city is to another today." -- Lindsay E. Dygert --Focus Magazine

"Art photographer Hans Eijkelboom's obsessive catalogue of hundreds of people on city streets--in Paris, New York, Shanghai is subtle and revealing." -- Stirling Kelso --Travel + Leisure
