DEPOORTER, BIEKE - Bieke Depoorter - Ou Menya. [First edition - Signed].

Tielt, Lannoo, 2011. 32 x 24 cm. [128] pp. Softcover. Illustrated in colour throughout. - Text in Dutch, English and French. - Ou Menya is the remarkable portfolio of award-winning photographer Bieke Depoorter. For three months the Belgian student travelled through Russia and Siberia gathering material for her graduation thesis. With a firm idea of what she wanted - to document brief but intense shared moments - she allowed the Trans-Siberian express to take her from village to village, from living room to living room. Not knowing a single word of Russian, the young photographer relied entirely upon a short note that her first hostess had translated for her in order to find lodgings. -
Never knowing where she might end up, Depoorter allowed her intuition to guide her; using body and sign language to communicate, she quickly gained people's confidence, and her unannounced arrival often resulted in an impromptu celebration. - Primarily the photographs contained in this volume are evidence of transient and powerful human encounters. The collection is not a cross-section of life in the Russian countryside, but rather, a record of raw, uninhibited experiences, representative of Depoorter's connection to, and involvement with a number of different families. - Accompanies an exhibition in de Kunsthal in Rotterdam (Netherlands) from December 10 2011 and in the Sint-Pietersabdij in Ghent from May 27 2012 until September 23 2012. - Bieke Depoorter won the HP Magnum Expression Award for this series and in 2011 she became a member of the collective 'Tendance Floue'. - New copy
