The meticulous attention to production details characterizes her body of work, and elements such as sound (or its absence –silence) are often used as important tools of narration, helping the viewer to enter into the conceptual depth of Dolron’s works. Both moving and still images are composed by the artist and manage to recreate a reality that is a-temporal, undefined yet extremely present.

Desirée Dolron (1963 Haarlem, NL) was awarded the 1996 Laureate Prix de Rome (Amsterdam, NL), and her work is part of major international collections such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York (US), the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (SP), the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (NL), and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (UK).

Desirée Dolron - Xteriors 2001-2015
Author: Desirée Dolron
Publisher: Raven Publishers
Year: 2017 - Pages: 112
Desirée Dolron, Reputed to be one of the most successful Dutch photographers in the world today, recently completed her series 'Xteriors' (2001 - 2015). The book, designed by Irma Boom Office, unites all works from this project for the first time. The intentionality of Dolron's approach is palpable; every decision regarding technique and form is meticulously considered in the pictorial construction of these darkly introverted and strangely timeless photographs. The models inhabit a tranquil and withdrawn realm of near-perfect compositions. Beautifully crafted in a hybridised visual language that blurs the traditional disciplinary boundaries between painting and photography, analogue, and digital. With texts by Wim Pijbes and Charlotte Cotton.
