Wessing, Koen - in China en Tibet
Amsterdam, Stedelijk Museum, 1987 . First edition. Softcover. 27x25. New . Catalog for the exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, photography; Koen Wessing, Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum 1987.
The photographs of Koen Wessing (b.1942) conjure up stories. His images tell tales about Ireland, Chile, Guinea-Bissau, Nicaragua, El Salvador, China, Berlin, & Amsterdam. Wessing is always moving on, ever seeking places of conflict which he does not fully understand, his experienced eye scouting for situations full of tension for him to visualise. He is not a voyeur, not someone who stops off for a few fleeting news shots, but a person with eyes that notice and a heart that responds. He records without speaking and can be resolute and uncompromising if necessary.
