Desiree Dolron was born in 1963, Netherlands. She’s acute vision meshes traditional reportage photography and computer enhancement to create a richer version of a genre that many believe to be tired and overused. The stillness and subtlety that is evoked by her seamless work has created a 21st century vision at odds with traditional photographic practice. Her references are obvious, but the outcomes are a revelation.The outstanding Dutch artist Desiree Dolron has produced a new series of images which has been three years in the making. Entitled Xteriors, this group of nine seamlessly constructed works have the quality of Old Master paintings, although they are in fact digital photographic composites of several different faces. The portrait Katya, seen here, is one of the first pieces made for this series and shows us the definitive direction that the project has taken. The series will be finally revealed in its entirety at the Michael Hoppen Gallery.
