This trilingual book is the provisional culmination of ten years of collaboration between Belgian photographer Max Pinckers and the writer Hans Theys, who was given permission to make a classic photo book with a personal selection from all of Pinckers’ photos, without having to take their original context into account. The publication also includes an essay in which Theys considers Pinckers’ oeuvre from some thoughts of Susan Sontag.
Max Pinckers (°1988) is a Belgian artist-photographer. In his work he explores the critical, technological and ideological structures that underlie the production and consumption of documentary images. For Pinckers, documentary is a speculative process in which reality and truth can be used as multiple and malleable concepts. He has been awarded several times with international prizes, including the Prix Levallois, the Edward Steichen Award Luxembourg and the Leica Oskar Barnack Award.
