Desirée Dolron, now considered one of the most successful Dutch photographers in the world today, completed her series “Xteriors” in 2015. This perfectly executed book, designed by Irma Boom, 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 calm and reclusive realm of near-perfect compositions. Beautifully designed in a hybridized visual language that blurs the traditional disciplinary boundaries between painting and photography, analog and digital.
