Johan Van Der Keuken

Born, 1938 in Amsterdam, Netherlands

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

”The pleasure in a glance, in the curiosity of looking has had a formative influence on Johan van der Keuken’s work from the beginning. Published in 1955, his first book of photographs, Wij zijn 17 (We are 17), tenderly portrays his own generation as young poets, no longer children, yet not quite adults. His tentativeness in taking account of the world characterizes the more than fifty films van der Keuken completed since the end of the 1950s.”
