My second post is about Viviane Sassen’s photographic work in Africa.
I was impressed of it, the first time I saw pictures of her “Flamboya” series. Her different photographic approach on Africa, was completely new to me. The colors, shadows, poses and poetry in her pictures, show an Africa that I have never seen before.
Here is a short introduction of Viviane Sassen by herself.
“My name is Viviane Sassen. I grew up in Africa, partly, in Kenya. In 2002 or so, I decided to travel back to Africa together with my husband. When we reached the places I grew up, I just had very vivid dreams and memories of the time that I was a kid. For me, photography is a very intuitive process. I think most of my work has to do more with my own personality and, I don’t know, maybe with my own emotions and, it’s not that political. It’s not meant to be that political. And I like this kind of ambiguity. At least I hope you can perceive the work or read the work in different ways.”
