(SOLD): SASSEN, Viviane. Flamboya.

(Rome): Contraso, 2008. First edition. Quarto. Unpaginated. The first comprehensive catalogue to feature the independent work of Dutch photographer and Prix de Rome winner, Viviane Sassen. The volume photographs taken across Africa from Cape Town to Kenya and Zambia that disregard traditional boundaries of genre and tackle the problematic bond between photography, imperialism and the colonial imaginary. Renowned for being a visionary and a creator, editorial artist and fashion photographer, Sassen imbues her portrait of Africa with the lush chromaticity and compositional appeal that secured the impact of her ad campaigns and editorial series created for such brands as Miu Miu, Adidas and Louis Vuitton, and for publications such as iD, Purple, Dazed & Confused and Vogue. This is a good copy only, heavily rubbed at the spine, and edges, with small surface scratch to front board. Internally sound.
