Bertien van Manen\n

\nBeyond Maps and Atlases\n

\nSigned by the Photographer\n

\nIn this new body of work, Beyond Maps and Atlases, Bertien van Manen turns to Ireland. Van Manen says, ?At first, working in Ireland I wasn?t sure what I was looking for. My husband had died. I dispensed with the people and reflected on the atmosphere. I was guided by a feeling and a search, a longing for some kind of meaning in a place of myths and legends. There was mystery and endlessness at the edge of a land beyond which is nothing but a vast expanse.?\n

\nWhere can it be found again,
\nAn elswhere world, beyond
\nMaps and atlases,
\nWhere all is woven into
\nAnd of itself, like a nest
\nOf crosshatched grass blades?
\nSeamus Heaney

\nVan Manen rolled into photography almost by accident, taking pictures of her children with an old camera. As her work became more public she was soon drafted into the world of fashion photography. In 1977 she tired of the industry, and on discovering the documentary photography of Robert Frank and Josef Koudelka, van Manen began to explore the developing relationship between herself and her subjects, keeping a closeness and developing a personal, organic style of photography. Recent works include Easter and Oak Trees (MACK, 2013) and Moonshine (MACK, 2014)\n
