About Roxane II
‘In this photographic series, Sassen and her muse Roxane Danset continue writing the shared visual journal they began in 2012. In an introductory poem, Maria Barnas captures the spirit of the work as she writes: “When I take a glance at our selves I hold my breath and see us expand in colours and clouds bursting from a mouth. Are they yours or mine?”.
The series presents a dynamic range of poses, moods and movements, making full use of the suggestive nature of shadow, the abstracting potential of ambiguous props and the power of painterly gestures.’
Viviane Sassen is a dutch photographer, prevalent in both the fashion and fine art world. She has had multiple solo exhibitions, group projects and publications. Sassen lived in Kenya as a child but now lives in Amsterdam. She is renowned for her use of geometric shapes, often abstractions of bodies. Sassen says, “You should always be able to judge a photograph on different grounds, on political, social, emotional, but also on personal grounds”.
