by Ron Van Dongen
Publisher's Description
“Eight years ago I was asked to see the photographs of an extraordinary portraitist whose subjects were flowers. I remember thinking that this was an unusual way to describe an artist’s work, yet from first glance it was abundantly clear that the description was accurate. Ron’s photographs are portraits; plants and flowers his subjects. After nurturing them from seed or spore they pose for Ron’s lens when he deems the moment right. The results are a deeply personal, intimate recording of architecture, life, frailty, resolve, emotion and sensuality.” – Ralph Lauren

Our fifth monograph on Ron van Dongen, Effusus documents the artist’s recent shift to color photography. While the earliest work reproduced in this book dates from 1997, the vast majority of plates were made during the past two years. At the urging of gallerists and curators – bowled over by the early examples they had seen – van Dongen has recently begun to exhibit his color work to much critical acclaim. Effusus is printed in an oversized format, hardbound in Japanese cloth. Ron van Dongen’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is housed in many important collections worldwide.
