Rineke Dijkstra is a photographer and video artist. In her work she looks for specific characteristics of individuals in group contexts. The paradox between identity and uniformity. Her subjects are often people in a transitional state. Adolescents between childhood and adulthood. She manages to convey the vulnerable side of her subjects, caught at a decisive moment of transition in their lives.
“Her work is almost like an antidote. We’re so overwhelmed by images, not only of celebrities but of people trying to posture as celebrities or self-market, that having representations where that is really not what it’s about—personally I find the images very attractive for that reason.”- Jennifer Blessing, senior photography curator at the Guggenheim Museum.
