A limited-edition artist's book - only 1000 produced - by Dutch photographer Cuny Janssen, known for integrating portraits of schoolchildren - with the serious looks that only children can convey - with images of the natural world, expanding the classic sociodocumentary style into a much more narrative and expansive look at ''place''. For this project, Janssen made two visits to the sub-tropical island of Amami-Oshima, at the southernmost tip of Japan. This powerful yet graceful book, including 100 images (some of which fold out to double size) creates a feeling of a place almost frozen in time. ''Janssen is not concerned with the topographical highlights but with universal forces in nature,'' writes one critic. ''With her photographs she attempts to arrive at that vital essence. Her work is an ode to life itself''.

Book Description Snoeck Verlagsges. Okt 2009, 2009. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Cuny Janssen legt in diesem Herbst zwei ganz besondere, technisch raffiniert ausgestattete Bücher vor. Sie könnten, nachdem die niederländische Fotografin schon mit ihrem ersten Buch von Martin Parr in sein voluminöses The Photobook History: Volume II aufgenommen worden ist, wegen ihrer begrenzten Auflage (1.000 Ex.) schnell zu begehrten Sammlerstücken werden. Cuny Janssen sucht immer wieder nach ungewöhnlichen Präsentationsformen, um ihre Bücher in einen spezifischen Bezug zur jeweiligen Landschaft und den Porträts ihrer Menschen, oft sind das Kinder, zu setzen. So auch bei Amami, einem Fotobuch über die gleichnamige zweitgrößte der Riukiu-Inseln, die einer der vier japanischen Hauptinseln, Kiuschu, vorgelagert ist. Das Gesicht der im Ostchinesischen Meer gelegenen Insel, die 7.000 Bewohnern auf ca. 70 Quadratkilometern Heimat bietet, wird von einer wilden, rauh wirkenden Inselküstenvegetation geprägt, obwohl das subtropische Klima mit einem Jahresdurchschnitt von 21 Grad zwei Ernten im Jahr erlaubt. Die auf großen Centerfolds versammelten Schülerporträts vermitteln den Eindruck einer tief gründenden Ernsthaftigkeit, die vielleicht aus der steten Bedrohung durch eine nie zu bändigende Natur resultiert. Cuny Janssen is presenting two special, technically-speaking cleverly furnished books this Autumn. After the Dutch photographer was included by Martin Parr in his voluminous The Photobook History: Volume II, and in view of the limited number of copies (1,000), these editions could very rapidly become highly collectable. Cuny Janssen is perpetually on the lookout for unusual forms of presentation, in order to place her books in a specific relationship to the respective landscapes or portraits of the inhabitants-mainly children-she chooses to photograph. Thus, is also the case of Amami, a photobook about the second largest of the Ryukyu Islands of the same name, which is situated to the south of the one of the four main Japanese islands, Kiuschu. The aspect of these islands in the East China Sea, offering around 70 square kilometres of homeland to a total of 7,000 inhabitants, is characterised by a wild, raw coastal island vegetation, although the subtropical climate averaging 21° throughout the year, yields two harvests per annum. The portraits of schoolchildren on the large centrefolds convey an impression of profound seriousness, which derives perhaps from the continual threat from the untameable forces of nature. 126 pp. Englisch.
