Based on an award-winning exhibition, Viviane Sassen's new book focuses on a common theme in her photographs: shadow. In this book she leads us through a series of thought-provoking takes on the concept-shadow as metaphor for anxiety and desire; as a symbol of both memory and hope for the future; and as an evocation of imagination and illusion. Sassen's work is renowned for its deft interplay between realism and abstraction. Here that characteristic emerges in the dramatic use of light, shadow and colour, as well as the adroit cropping of images and interventions on the prints. This lovely book brilliantly accentuates Sassen's contrasting colour schemes to reinforce the idea of shadow creating an enthralling tactile and visual experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Boils photography down to its essence: inspiring us to take a second look at the world around us by showing us how it is transformed within the borders of a photo."
--Photo District News

"Simply beautiful with a very distinguished use of color. Only very few photographers know how to do that." -Photo-eye

"[Pikin Slee is] a real place in Suriname. . . and if the place has anything like the character Sassen captures in what is one of the most elegant, seamless meldings of duotone and color I've encountered, I want to go."
