Book Signing: Umbra by Viviane Sassen
ICP Store, 1133 Avenue of the Americas
Sunday, May 4, 3:30pm

Join 2011 Infinity Award recipient Viviane Sassen for a signing of her book Umbra.

Umbra delves into the world of shadows. A darkness that is seductive and deceptive. A darkness that lies in every human soul, as a still black lake with a surface flat as a mirror that can not be but shattered. Umbra is, naturally, also the story of light, from its blinding qualities to its brittle brightness. The ever conflicting pull of light and darkness kicked off the quest for imagery of what can not be contained: a world continuously in motion, the mind unable to decide which direction to take. Shadow, eventually, as a force of life, and not only the negation of light.

This project with photographs by Viviane Sassen and poems by Maria Barnas contains a booklet and 11 separate images.
