First retrospective of the universally admired Dutch photobook.

"Famouz is much more than a random collection of portraits of pop and rock musicians from the period 1975-1988. The volume also contains a few townscapes and serene shots of (religious) sculptures. Most of the artists pose on the street or in bars or appear like tiny figures in a desolate landscape. These diverse locations give the book the look and feel of a road movie.
In consultation with the British designers Richard Smith and Peter Saville, Corbijn created subtle visual rhymes in the mise-en-page. For example, Stevie Wonder's cornrows with the shaved figure S enter into a formal relationship with the hunched figure of Peter Gabriel on a winding path. The book contains black pages to reinforce the somber mood of some of the images—like the famous final portrait of Ian Curtis before his suicide. When the second edition of Famouz was published in 1997, the photo of David Bowie as the Elephant Man was put on the cover, an introduction by Bono was added and four photos were changed. In view of the decision to include the 1975 portrait of Sandy Denny the subtitle was changed to 'photographs 1975-88.'"

Featured text, by editor Rik Suermondt, was reproduced from the section on Anton Corbijn's Famouz, published in The Dutch Photobook.

The Dutch Photobook

A Thematic Selection from 1945 Onwards

Published by Aperture
Edited by Frits Gierstberg, Rik Suermondt.

Featured image, the cover of Anton Corbijn's 1987 edition of <I>Famouz</I>, is reproduced from <I>The Dutch Photobook</I>.The Dutch photobook is internationally celebrated for its particularly close collaboration between photographer, printer and designer. The current photobook publishing boom in the Netherlands stems from a tradition of excellence that precedes World War II, but the postwar years inaugurated a period of particularly close collaboration between photographers and designers, producing such unique photography books as Ed van der Elsken’s Love on the Left Bank (1956) and Koen Wessing’s Chili, September 1973 (1973). Innovations such as the photo novel and the company photobook blossomed in the 1950s and 60s; later, other genres emerged to characterize the publishing landscape in Holland, including conceptual and documentary photobooks, books on youth culture, urbanism photobooks and landscape photobooks and travelogues. Examining each of these genres across six themed chapters, The Dutch Photobook features selections from more than 100 historical, contemporary and self-published photobook projects. It includes landmark publications such as Hollandse taferelen by Hans Aarsman (1989), The Table of Power by Jacqueline Hassink (1996), Why Mister Why by Geert van Kesteren (2006) and Empty Bottles by Wassink Lundgren (2007). Dutch photo historians Frits Gierstberg and Rik Suermondt contribute several essays on the history of the genre, the collaborative efforts between photographers and designers and their inspiration and influences, complementing the high-quality reproductions of photobooks throughout. Award-winning designer Joost Grootens contributes unique charts and diagrams that consolidate all of these elements, in a visually unique map of the Dutch photobook.
