This book that my mother once bought long time ago is now lying on my table again today. We had to clear out my mothers appartment. She’s now living in a home for people with Alzheimers disease. I remember the book very well from my childhood and now and again I liked to look at the beautiful and strong black and white photographs. The images still feel very familiar and are of course very well known classics. 1955, already 60 years ago. The book is all yellow now and time has been eating its cover. The images however still remain strong and unforgettable. Although my mother can’t remember what she did or said 3 minutes ago I am sure she will still remember some of these powerfull images.
Maiya projecting some strong looks or starting a stare-down contest(?) at an image in the New Library in Almere.
