Publisher’s Description: 

Somewhere in densely populated Holland exists a twilight zone where it is possible to travel in time: a small strip of dunes separating polder and sea, just a twenty minute drive from the city of Amsterdam. In DUNE, Misha de Ridder unveils natural scenes so estranged and mysterious that they could be described as unreal realities. Lushly presented in this limited-edition artist book, De Ridder’s precise and highly detailed photographs call to mind Dutch landscape paintings of the 17th century and Romantic Era. In the barren and tormented nature of the dunes, it is light, color and atmosphere that salvage the memory of a wilderness lost.

Misha de Ridder (b. 1971) lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 1996, he graduated from the Utrecht School of the Arts. He has exhibited amongst others at The Museum of the City of New York, FIAC Paris, PhotoEspaña Madrid, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and his solo exhibition “Solstice” will open at Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam in June 2011. Publications include Sightseeing (De Balie, 2000),Wilderness (Artimo, 2003), Abendsonne (Schaden, 2011) and DUNE (Lay Flat, 2011). Misha de Ridder is represented by Juliètte Jongma Gallery in Amsterdam.
