“I think I found a language, how to show things, that can make you look  at things in a slightly different way than what you’re used to.” Rineke Dijkstra
If you’re not already familiar with the work of Rineke Dijkstra, then I invite you to have a deeper look at this remarkable photographer. Much has been written and said about her work and I won’t add to the chatter, but leave you to make up your own mind.  In fact, hearing what she has to say is actually much better.  Next month on February 19th the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will launch the first mid-career retrospective of her work.  The show will later travel to New York’s Guggenheim, where it will open on June 29th.  With over 70 images spanning her career on display, I for one am already excited to see what will most likely be one of the top photo shows of 2012. —Lane Nevares
From SFMOMA: In works of classical simplicity and remarkable psychological depth,  Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra presents a contemporary take on the genre  of portraiture. Whether adolescents, soldiers, or new mothers, Dijkstra  is fascinated by people in states of significant transition. Her  sensitive pictures generate a monumental sense of presence, not only in  how they record the details of an individual’s physical appearance, but  also in how they illuminate subtly shifting inner states. The scale and  ambition of Dijkstra’s photographs connects them to a Dutch tradition of  portraiture stretching back to Rembrandt and Frans Hals. Bringing  together 70 large-scale color photographs and five video installations,  this is the artist’s first major retrospective in the United States.http://www.sfmoma.org/exhib_events/exhibitions/438#ixzz1kcbG7gDk
