Bertien van Manen: Photographs of Photographs in Europe

Bertien van Manen, "Rome Fausto Coppio"

from the series: Photographs of photographs in Europe

by Bertien van Manen 2007

"In 2002 I started photographing photographs in parts of private interiors in Europe.
An interior is a metaphore for the inner being, showing in an unemphatical way the history, feelings, ideas and hopes of the inhabitants. The interior is a cocoon or a shell, that people build to keep their dreams in."
