"The beautifully simple, desaturated yet crisp, photographs of children...and it's a clean book with a proper size for the images, giving them the space they deserve."?PhotoInduced
The portraits in this collection are theatrical, with the children in ?fancy dress,? yet a sense of unease pervades?this is an anarchistic, even surreal, take on childhood and play. Vee Speers exposes a side of childhood that is neither carefree nor cliched, and through the children she projects a range of emotions and definitions that are part of our imperfect adult world.
Launched at Paris Photo, Speers? work is avidly collected and is selling out in galleries in both Europe and the United States.

Descrizione libro Dewi Lewis, 0. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. This is the long awaited second printing This is a series of portraits of children about to attend an imaginary birthday party. Inspired by her daughter?s birthday party Speers imagined what characters might be created if role play were pushed to imaginative extremes. The children are placed in front of the same white wall and gaze into the lens of the camera, performing within a strictly laid out frame. They reveal very little of themselves and yet this is what makes the portraits so magnetic. The childlike game of dressing up, of putting on costumes, reinforces the surreal tone of the series. The Birthday Party is ?anarchistic? in its take on childhood and play, ?both improvisatory and highly theatrical. unsentimental but playful, macabre. in a way which is liberating both for us as viewer and perhaps for her subjects too.? Clare Grafik, The Photographers Gallery, London ?There is always a certain tension in my work which draws the viewer into what is hidden beneath the surface. My intention was to show a real side of human nature, to expose a side of childhood that is not care-free or clich?d, and project a range of emotions and definitions which are part of an imperfect world.?
