Hand made book with photography by Margaret Lansink and poetry by Réne van Hulst
We feel overwhelmed to present the upcoming book with photography by Margaret Lansink and poetry by Réne van Hulst. Or, as we have come to call it, a gem. The book seeks to embody Margaret’s highly poetic and emotional aesthetics in photography and turn it into a photobook, or rather an artist’s book. The book is a sensual experience – its elongated form, softness, weight, papers’ various structures, folds are telling the story.
Margaret Lansink is a fine art photographer who received a BA from the PhotoAcademy in Amsterdam, studied for a year at LeMasterklass Paris and subsequently at Smedsby Atelier in Paris. Lansink’s work is created around a strong signature of aesthetic, poetic and slightly minimalistic images yet all able to convey a powerful emotional message.
This is substantiated by her usage of intuitive photography, creating imagery that presents an open and honest reflection of her emotions, doubts, reflections or struggles in life. Lansink series are often founded on human’s processes of accepting life as it is. Each with its own angle of approach, but based on the beauty of imperfection and impermanence; the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi.
To capture the atmospheric variety of human inner emotions, Lansink uses various analogue techniques and experiments with making collages, using paint, gold leaf, charcoal as well as old darkroom technology like liquid light or platinum palladium printing.
Réne van Hulst
Next to a worldwide career in branding & advertising, René has found his creative language through poetry on topics or issues that matter most to him. Like the need for change in the way we humans currently live, the revaluation of our respect for Nature as well as finding new ways for human reconnection. Therefore, the body of his work often reflects very personal musings on the potential of our human existence. Having published two books with poetry in Dutch, unbound is now his second book with English poetry and also the second book in cooperation with Margaret Lansink.
