H.H CAPOR: VERENA. Fotohof edition, Salzburg, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 111 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783902993175 In English.
Publisher's description: In the year 2000 Austrian photographer Hermann Capor began photographing his collaboration with Verena, a young woman who, shortly before she was due to take her final school exams, had to undergo a life-altering surgery. She awoke from the anesthesia to discover that her body had a long scar and a colostomy bag. At Verena's initiative, Capor documented the course of her disease over the next three years until her recovery. Inspired by Modigliani and other role models, the artist created intimate stage settings for the young woman, addressing the discrepancy between the erotic figure and the visible signs of serious illness, transcending the taboo of gazing at physical defects and their depiction. The comprehensive documentation is accompanied by diary-like sequences of entries penned by both the protagonist herself and the artist. A handsome production and an elegant, if voyeuristic, portrayal of a young woman with a life-changing illness.
