A new publication by Lay Flat: DUNE by Dutch photographer Misha de Ridder. “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.’
Get this beautiful little book at Lay Flat in a saddle stitched softcover, a limited signed one or a special edition of 20 with an archival color print by the artist. And be sure to visit de Ridders’ website with more amazing images!
