On a recent trip to Amsterdam, I was delighted to discover an exhibition of vintage photographs by Dutch photographer Sanne Sannes at the HUP Gallery. I had never heard of Sannes before, probably because he died too early, at age 30, in a drunken car crash while he was on a meteoric rise in his photographic career.
The photos, all printed by Sannes himself, represent a wide range of experimental photographs that have a distinctly 1960s decadent feel to them. Martin Parr and Gerry Badger included Sannes' book, Sex a Gogo, in Volume 1 of their History of the Photobook (so, it is impossible to find a realistically priced copy of that book now, of course).
You can see a small selection of images from Sannes, and learn more about his short career, in this article in Lens Culture.
