The Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra has taken the formal qualities of the early-20th-century studio portrait and used this convention (the full length, frontal and centrally composed portrait) to photograph individuals. Each photographic portrait has a precise date and location, suggesting a conscious evocation of the work of August Sander and his project to document citizens of the 20th century. The photographs stand by themselves and bear no reference to personal circumstances or to specific geographical details of the location. This book will survey Dijkstra's recent photographic and video work.
