Koos Breukel: Among Photographers
by Marietta de vries
Publisher's Description
This slightly oversized volume is composed of 55 powerful black and- white portraits by the Dutch photographer Koos Breukel, all of internationally renowned photographers like Richard Avedon, Robert Frank and Rineke Dijkstra—alongside a major work, in color or blackand- white, by each of the artists who were photographed. Thus Dennis Hopper’s portrait is followed by a double-page spread of a biker couple, and Hellen van Meene’s is preceded by a beautiful adolescent redhead wearing a too-large camisole—looking over her shoulder and bathed in Vermeer-ish light. Made over the course of 15 years, this series collects all of Breukel’s greatest heroes, who willingly sat for his 8 x 10 camera. Other featured artists include Ron Galella, Teun Hocks, Inez van Lamsweerde, Daido Moriyama, Arno Nollen, the Starn twins and a veritable who’s who of Dutch twentieth-century photography.
