Katrien De Blauwer


I recently bought, When I Was a Boy, by Katrien De Blauwer and published in 2018 by Libraryman. I first came across De Blauwer's collages in her publication, I do not want to disappear, published by Avarie. Both are equally enigmatic and have an aesthetic which is hard to pin down, there's this uncertainty and sense of an unfinished moment in time that is seductive.

"I would like to describe myself as a photographer without a camera. I'm re-editing and re-using photographs. They're stills but nevertheless preserve a filmic vibration. The cut is the click. Making collages is a post photographic process" [From Conscientious Photography Magazine]
