The French photographer William Ropp is well-known for the unique style in which he captures the mysterious aspects of human nature. Taking outstanding pictures of children is only one part of the internationally renowned photographer's oeuvre. Surprisingly, it is not the viewer who gazes at the children; they rather redirect the stare towards the person looking at the unfathomable black and white pictures. Seemingly coming from a different time, these young human beings unify ancient mysteries and timeless questions in their appearances. The artist's foreword gives an insight into his technique, illuminating the enigmatic pictures.
A limited edition with original photos packaged in a box will also be available.

I do NOT agree with the Tag "Disturbing" (suggested below) at all !!! This book shows fine photography in a fine way - the effects used on the images turn them into slightly unreal realities, and the images themselves are nothing more than portrayals of beautiful people... even if they are children !
