RETRACING: REIN JELLE TERPSTRA. Hanne Hagenaars and Arjen Mulder. Post Editions, Rotterdam, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 86 pp. with 51 col. ills. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9789460830761 In English.
Publisher's description: Dutch photographer Rein Jelle Terpstra centers his new series and publication on people about to loose their eyesight. In Retracing, there is a thoughtful investigation into visual perception and the tension between remembrance and forgetting. Terpstra photographed scenes his subjects wish to remember on Kodachrome slides, with a promise to later describe their images in words. His use of Kodachrome film adds an additional layer to the project-besides its exceptional color-since the film is no longer produced. As only the memories of images exist to his participants, so does the history of the material used. This beautiful, linen-bound book reflects that conceptual construction: the first section, printed on photo paper, reproduces the Kodachrome slides across the page as film stills; while the second, on matte stock, documents the exhibition of projections.
