Rineke Dijkstra at SFMOMA

Rineke Dijkstra, one of the photographers featuring in the next issue of Foam Magazine, is on show at SFMOMA. Here is what they have to say about her:

'In works of classical simplicity and remarkable psychological depth, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra presents a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture. Whether adolescents, soldiers, or new mothers, Dijkstra is fascinated by people in states of significant transition. Her sensitive pictures generate a monumental sense of presence, not only in how they record the details of an individual's physical appearance, but also in how they illuminate subtly shifting inner states. The scale and ambition of Dijkstra's photographs connects them to a Dutch tradition of portraiture stretching back to Rembrandt and Frans Hals. Bringing together 70 large-scale color photographs and five video installations, this is the artist's first major retrospective in the United States.'
