Helena van der Kraan
design and editing: Jurgen Maelfeyt
Helena van der Kraan (1940-2020) is a photographer’s photographer, her photos make you reflect on the ordinary things in life. Due to the great simplicity of both subject and image, the viewer may be inclined to associate a metaphor with what has been photographed, she never tries to steer the viewer’s interpretation. For her personally, a bottle remains a bottle. She finds comfort and beauty in the photography of the everyday and is eager to share this with others. This is the first book devoted solely to her still life work, the images in the book are selected to compliment her latest, posthumous, solo Still (a) Life at Madé van Krimpen Gallery.
In collaboration with Madé van Krimpen Gallery.
