Selected as one of the Best Books of 2010 by Larissa Leclair
Marco van Duyvendijk is a ‘slow’ photographer, preferring to work on a series for months and sometimes years. Even so, over the past decade he has produced enough work for a retrospective at the Hague Museum for Photography in the Netherlands, demonstrating an impressive start to a career. Van Duyvendijk does not confine himself to any single genre, alternating travel and documentary photography with portraits. But his work always shows the control and care that are the marks of an empathic and intelligent photographer giving his subjects the time they deserve.
