Erik Kessels

Erik Kessels is a Dutch photographer and collector whose work centres on publishing and exhibiting period and private vernacular photographs that he has been gradually amassing, thereby elevating them to the status of museum pieces. He has published a number of books on this theme, among them The Instant Men (1999) and Wonder (2006), and has curated various exhibitions, some of them as part of the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie in Arles. In 1996 he launched the KesselsKramer communications agency, which he is creative director of and which has won several international prizes.
