These pages from Viviane Sassen’s Sketchbook give a good insight into her working method, which is highly conceptual. I wish I could see something like this from more photographers.
“When I’m working, I usually take a sketch book. Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning and I have had very vivid dreams or I just suddenly have an idea, I start sketching. So sometimes my pictures are almost literal pictures of the sketches I did. And then, on the other moment, I just find something on the street which excites me […]. I want to establish a kind of a poem almost, a kind of rhythm. And having all these images together, which sometimes have a kind of surrealness about them already and then together combined with other pictures.”
