Rineke Dijkstra ◊

Rineke Dijkstra’s photographs and video works center on people at certain crossroads in their lives, like young soldiers, new mothers, and adolescents. She tends to isolate her subject against a simple backdrop, highlighting their particular features, clothing, and demeanor, to produce a frank and intimate image. While some such close and singular portraits are wont to make claims of conjuring the sitter’s deepest inner life, the typifying seriality and minimal aesthetic of Dijkstra’s work instead raises issues of the exterior, of the sitter’s self-presentation to the camera, and of the viewer’s projections into the portrait.
