Esther Kroon Rosan Hollak portretten Slangen Advocaten€ 60,00
A considerable portion of dutch photographer esther kroon's production consists of black-and-white portraits of children, made between 1988-1990 in the back streets of barcelona and amsterdam. The photographs are taken from a low viewpoint with flash, focusing attention on the children themselves, who seem full of confidence. This book includes numerous images from kroon's archive, especially her portrayals of young gypsies and children from working-class neighbourhoods.
On 3 october 2012 (17.30), The book esther kroon will be officially presented in foam, fotomuseum amsterdam. The book is a homage to this talented photographer, brutally killed while on a field trip in guatemala in 1992. E
sther kroon studied at the gerrit rietveld academie. She specialised in childrens portraits, taken in barcelona and amsterdam, amongst other locations. Her work was characterised by extremely low viewpoints and she favoured combining flash with daylight, a choice influenced by her tutor rineke dijkstra, for whom she also worked as an assistant. The first publication, esther kroon 1966-1992, was released by the publisher duo duo, containing 35 photographs; this new one contains 137 photos, most of which have never before been released. The last seven photos, printed in full colour, were taken by esther with her classmate and friend hatta fokker in new york. The archive of esther kroon is managed by the nederlands fotomuseum.
