Trine Søndergaard


Contemporary European Photography


It’s tempting to take the use of colour in Trine Søndergaard’s Monochrome Portraits (via) as what makes these images, but I actually don’t think that’s the case - that would reduce everything to visual gimmickry. Instead, the work lives from the photographs themselves and how they work. I am curious how this all will look in the context of the book that is due out - with things being conceptual, there is always the danger of the conceptual bits overwhelming the photography (so that once you “get” the concept there is nothing left to be seen).
