Sophie Ristelhueber: Details Of The World
Essay by Cheryl Brutvan.
Drawing as much from the techniques of photojournalism and the poetics of the New Novel as from the aesthetics of fine art, the photographs of Sophie Ristelhueber convey a world at once intensely personal and objectively restrained. Her camera embraces the scars of human existence, whether the devastation of a war-torn landscape, the furrows of a suture, or the hidden wounds of remembered childhood, conferring on each a personal resonance that echoes far beyond the events portrayed. Details of the World offers the first comprehensive overview of Ristelhueber's career, presenting a selection from all her major installations as well as previously unpublished recent work. She has also worked closely on the book's design, making it not only the best anthology of her images, but also an art object in and of itself.
