Printed Matter is pleased to announce a launch for DUNE by Dutch photographer Misha De Ridder, published by Lay Flat. Starting at 6 PM, de Ridder will give a presentation about his practice, touching on his interest in connecting with the natural landscape through images, as well as considerations of publishing his photo works in book form. Joining de Ridder will be Diana Balmori who teaches at the Yale University School of Architecture, and is the principal of Balmori Associates, a landscape and urban design firm in New York. She will speak about de Ridder’s work in terms of the un/natural landscape and modes of representation.
De Ridder will also screen his recent film Asgard, 2011, shot in subarctic Norway, which consists of one single fixed unedited shot. The short film (about 8 min long) shows a forest on a mountain as a storm passes through. Bringing to mind the work of Peter Hutton, a “story” evolves as the fast moving clouds and dark shadows beneath them move across the landscape.
