Portraits / Lieke Kruk
In this book Liedeke Kruk is an artist dedicated to the photographic capture of other artists. The portraits here are varied; intimate and distant, clear and indistinct, relaxed and tense, good humoured and grumpy. But the overall effect of this portfolio is remarkable, with page after page of contemporary art’s big hitters unfolding before the eyes, including shots of Luc Tuymans, Marlene Dumas, Gillian Wearing, Tacita Dean, Karel Appel, Jeff Wall, Pipilotti Rist, Sigmar Polke, Thomas Struth, Mike Kelley, Dan Graham, Bill Viola, Sophie Calle, and dozens more.

In addition to films and video installations, Liedeke Kruk has produced a great number of artists portraits over the past fifteen years. In this book, more than 200 of these portraits - merely polaroids - are brought together. Imperfection of technique and informal settings give the book an intriguing atmosphere in which a large number of well-known artists, exhibition makers, and gallery owners appear.
