PAUL KOOIKER »SUNDAY« – selected by SELVA BARNI

»I always liked Paul Kooiker’s work because of his distinctive approach to photography and his subjects: 11 extreme, politically incorrect, voyeuristic, but never vulgar. When I saw his sunday, I immediately fell for it. Essential and straight to the point. 80 plates, no text, devoid of any help for interpretation or mediation. Everything is there, in the captivating mix of flesh and light, the saturated colors of the background, the overexposed white skin of the bodies, the ambiguity generated by the overlapping of portraiture and postproduction. In these images the anatomy of the naked body becomes something else: pure empathy, pure form.«
