Fieret, Gerard P. - Fieret
First edition - Fieret Copyright G.P.Fieret
Dutch artist Gerard P. Fieret (1924-2009) created some of the strangest and most subversive works produced in Europe in the 1960s and 1970s. An obsessional and insatiable photographer, taking pictures of anything and everything, mainly focussing on women, legs, children, shop windows, street scenes, and himself. His presence, the interaction and complicity with his subjects are representative of his work. Fieret has continuously experimented and pushed the boundaries of photography with his reflex Praktica through solarization, double exposure, scratching the negatives, etc.
Echoing the fluidity and distortion of reality in Fieret’s work, this major monograph (592 pages) offers a poetic dialogue between the photographs by playing with transparency through the use of thin paper. Four critical essays by Wim van Sinderen, Hripsimé Visser, Francesco Zanot and Violette Gillet shed new light on the singular personality of Fieret and the multiple aspects of his work in relation to the history of photography and the arts.
