About The Book
Made for the most part on the Greek island of Hydra, the images in this publication reimagine a child’s gaze that still has an untethered and pristine view of the world. In trying to capture the unspoiled aspect of their surroundings, the artist couple found a new way of working that was inspired by things their daughter pointed out on their walks across the island.
It brought photographer van Drimmelen to focus on small and intimate details such as an animal shape formed by metal wire, debris that they found on the beach. Or the face they encountered in the deteriorating wall of a deserted hotel in an empty bay of the island. The photographs were then painted on by Krabbé to add an otherworldly second layer. The unexpected combination of paint and photo, sometimes with poems of Krabbé, collaged directly to the surface. Publisher’s Info
