Until May 14, 2017, the Singer Museum in Laren, the Netherlands, presents a mid-career retrospective on one the most successful Dutch photographers of today, Desiree Dolron. The exhibition, designed by Irma Boom, displays Dolron’s oeuvre to date, including previously unseen video works.
Dolron (1963) is widely known internationally. The Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid have work by Dolron in their collection.
The exhibition at the Singer Museum includes samples from her series Exaltation: Images of Religion and Death (1991-1999), Gaze (1996-1998) and Xteriors (2001-present), as well as from Te dí todos mis sueños [I gave you all my dreams] which Dolron shot in Cuba (2002-2003). Te dí todos mis sueños encompasses portraits and photographs of interiors and landscapes that show a particular, somewhat oppressive atmospheric view of life in Cuba. These are certainly not your typical images of Cuba. No old American cars and salsa dancers here, but beautiful images with a unique feel and perspective.
