Johan van der Keuken shot this image in France in 1975. On the bed in the room, rolled up sheets create an image of a mountainous landscape. Looking through the window the same shapes of the mountains echo in the distance. In the majority of Van der Keuken's work there is a second frame, within the image. This second frame questions our spatial perception. What is inside and what is outside, what is real and what reflects our inner sense of space? Due to the strong light and dark contrast, this game of frames is even more explicit.

Johan van der Keuken (1938 – 2001) was a Dutch photographer, filmmaker and documentary maker who was schooled in Paris as a cineaste. His prolific career spanned more than four decades in which he published nine photobooks and made fifty-five documentaries.

Most photo prints have a small white border around all sides. For a framer this border is necessary to be able to frame it properly. The print will be carefully wrapped and send as an insured package. You will receive an e-mail with a Track & Trace code when the package is on its way. A framed copy will be on display at Foam Editions, the gallery on the third floor of Foam Fotografiemuseum.
