Viviane Sassen & Emanuele Coccia: Modern Alchemy

Text by Emanuele Coccia. Photographs by Viviane Sassen.

Viviane Sassen & Emanuele Coccia: Modern Alchemy

A gorgeously printed philosophical photobook that reenchants the natural world

This project is the result of a unique fusion between photographer Viviane Sassen and philosopher Emanuele Coccia, two key figures in their respective fields. Sassen contributes 80 new photographs that celebrate the natural world, and Coccia supplies an ambitious essay that reassesses the unity of all sentient life. Neither an illustration of text nor a commentary on a series of images, Modern Alchemy situates their two streams of creativity in a dialogue, forging a reverent meditation on art and nature. Gorgeously bound in printed cloth, this meditative photobook invites readers to reenvision the earth’s ever-present beauty.
Viviane Sassen (born 1972) is a Dutch photographer based in Amsterdam who works in both the fashion and fine art worlds. She has photographed campaigns for luxury brands such as Miu Miu, Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton, and her work has been exhibited at Fotografiska, New York (2017); Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago (2017); and ICA, London (2015). She won the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award for Applied/Fashion/Advertising Photography in 2011.
Emanuele Coccia (born 1976) is a philosopher of aesthetics, with a focus on the ontological status and normative power of images in fashion and advertising. He is an associate professor at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris and visiting professor at Harvard. Coccia is the author of Metamorphoses (2021), The Life of Plants (2018) and Sensible Life (2016).

Yearning and Desire in 'Viviane Sassen & Emanuele Coccia: Modern Alchemy'

Yearning and Desire in 'Viviane Sassen & Emanuele Coccia: Modern Alchemy'

Featured spreads are from Viviane Sassen & Emanuele Coccia: Modern Alchemy, the gorgeous new clothbound collaboration between Dutch photographer and Italian philosopher—in which Coccia's words are interwoven with Sassen's images to create a meditative dialogue on art and nature. "Alchemy is the attempt to build a world in which everything is the mind and the hand of something other," Coccia writes. "A world where everything breathes and yearns in unison. From this point of view, from the inside of matter, time and the world take on a different appearance. History in the proper sense no longer exists. Neither does the idea of one unique planet, one true planet. There is only desire." continue to blog
