Dutch artist, poet and photographer Gerard P. Fieret (1924-2009) has
created some of the strangest and most subversive works produced in
Europe in the 1960s and 1970s. An obsessional and insatiable
photographer, taking pictures of anything and everything. He did focus
on subjects he was particularly fond of: women, legs, children, shop
windows, street scenes, and himself. His presence, the interaction and
complicity with his subjects, often quite sensual, are representative of
his work. Fieret has continuously experimented and pushed the
boundaries of the photographic medium with his reflex Praktica through
solarization, double exposure, scratching the negatives, etc.
the fluidity and distortion of reality in Fieret’s work, this major
monograph (592 pages) using very thin paper offers a poetic dialogue
between the photographs thanks to the play of transparency. Four
critical essays by Wim van Sinderen, Hripsimé Visser, Francesco Zanot and Violette Gillet shed new light on the singular personality of Fieret
and the multiple aspects of his work in relation with the history of
photography and the arts.
