Hans Eijkelboom: Paris - New York - Shanghai by Hans Eijkelboom

Book Description

World Dutch conceptual artist Hans Eijkelboom's work is very much in line with the deadpan, seemingly mechanistic note-taking of Ed Ruscha and Hans-Peter Feldman. In "Paris* New York* Shanghai", Eijkelboom creates a clever and witty comparative study of three major contemporary metropolises, each selected for having been (or promising to be) the cultural capital of its time.Paris during the nineteenth century; New York, the twentieth; and Shanghai, the twenty-first. This uniquely bound three-volume set unfolds to allow the reader not only to view each city individually, but also to compare simultaneously the three photographic studies of each metropolis and its citizens. Expansive cityscapes detailing the quirks of each city and the snapshot-style grids of their inhabitants soon reveal how similar one city is to another today. As Eijkelboom writes, Globalization, combined with the desire of cities for visually spectacular elements, is leading to the appearance everywhere of city centers that look the same and where identical products are sold.

Street and Modern Life by Hans Eijkelboom Street and Modern Life, Hardback (August 2015)

Hans Eijkelboom photographs in the street, the constantly changing territory which connects us, and is part of the process that forms our culture. He collects moments to be rearranged at a later date. His work is about us all: people struggling with a deep longing for individual identity, in a society that strives for conformism.

People of the Twenty-First Century by Hans Eijkelboom People of the Twenty-First Century, Paperback (October 2014)

An enormous and fascinating collection of 'anti-sartorial' street photographs
