Edition Patrick Frey, 2014 First edition Softcover housed in a cardboard wrapper, 80 pages, 280 x 420 mm Condition: New
As a follow-up to her widely acclaimed book “Ou Menya”, Bieke Depoorter traveled across the United States, asking perfect strangers whether she could spend a single night in their homes. These intimate and unexpected situations gave rise to portraits of individuals, couples and families.
Depoorter's photography is both intimate and removed, demonstrating her ability to build trust with strangers. The images are atmospherically charged, some melancholic, some comical, some subtly menacing. They thread a fine line between a real and cinematic world. In many of the photographs, she seems to go unnoticed, capturing the unguarded moments found only in the privacy of one’s own home.
“I like the atmosphere of the night. When people go to sleep, I think it’s most real. No one is looking at them, and they become their true selves.”
