Gaze Study number 15 (Iris), 2008
Dibonded Fujiflex Print
For years now, Desiree Dolron was born in 1963, Netherlands. She has travelled around the world. Whatever corner of the world she finds herself in, she has invariably returned with uniquely personal records of her journeys.
Dolron’s acute vision meshes traditional reportage photography and computer enhancement to create a richer version of a genre that many believe to be tired and overused. The stillness and subtlety that is evoked by her seamless work has created a 21st century vision at odds with traditional photographic practice. Her references are obvious, but the outcomes are a revelation.
Michael Hoppen Gallery has previously exhibited Dolron's 'Te dí todos mis sueños' (Cuba) series of work in 2003 which followed by the much talked about 'Xteriors' in 2004 on the contemporary floor.
Since then Dolron's reputation and recognition as one of the leading contemporary artist has exceeded our own expectations - supported by her first retrospective show of work from 1990-2005 presented by the Fotomuseum den Haag (The Hague Museum of Photography).
The associated book, 'Desiree Dolron', contains her four most important series: Gaze, Exaltation, Xteriors and Te dí todos mis sueños, and a limited number of copies are available at gallery. If you wish, please visit the Publications section for more information.
