Continuing the work he started with Album Beauty, Erik Kessels brings us a new work, based on his own collection of photographs. In Mother Nature, he assembles photographs of women posing in front of flowered backgrounds, including flowerbeds in public and private gardens, fields and beyond. This universal theme, which he identified within his own photo collection, allows us to observe both the repetition and difference that interweave, yielding a common narrative. This book gives us the opportunity to move between places, times, generations and cultures, the individual stories and foreign faces of which create a universe within which we see our common and immutable practices come together. In his book, Erik Kessels renders these private photographs visible anew, creating a visual anthropology of lived moments.
