As a tool for documentation and reflection, photography quickly became a major instrument of Didier Vermeiren's plastic dynamism. To this day, his dual artistic practice results in sculptures that create photographs and photographs that create sculptures.

Conceived by the artist, the book includes numerous images from his photographic archive; an introduction by Dirk Snauwaert and Zoë Gray; an in-depth analysis of the most recent sculptures by Michel Gauthier, curator at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, who has been following Vermeiren’s work for many years; and an essay by Susana Gállego Cuesta, director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nancy, on the key role of photography in his work.

Didier Vermeiren has selected an original photograph for this edition. Stamped, numbered and mounted on a passe-partout, it does not appear in the exhibition nor in the book itself.
