The book Sketches includes Polaroids made in Africa between 2002 and 2010. This publication could serve as an introduction to the work of Viviane Sassen and specially during the period of the Flamboya work. Sketches captures the raw energy of spontaneously staged street scenes and shows an inside view on Viviane Sassens creative process.
Viviane Sassen was born in 1972 in Amsterdam, and lives and works there. She first studied fashion design followed by photography at Hogeschool voor Kunsten Utrecht and fine art at Ateliers Arnhem. Sassen grew up in East Africa and has been taking photographs on the continent since her first return visit in 2002.
