Album Beauty is an ode to the vanishing era of the photo album. Once commonplace in every home, the photo album has been replaced in the digital age by the storage of images online and on hard drives. These visual narratives are testament to the once-universal appeal of documenting and displaying the mundane. Commonly a repository of family history, they usually represented a manufactured family as edited for display. Albums spoke of birth, death, beauty, sexuality, pride, happiness, youth, competition, exploration, complicity and friendship. Numerous anonymous stories from all over the world will be told through the Erik Kessels collection. (source: RVB Books)
The commercial edition was printed in an edition of 1500 copies and published on the occasion of the exhibition in Arles (France) and the FOAM in Amsterdam.

The book was not as described. A portion of it was damaged and the seller did not respond to my message. This has soured me on catawiki in general, as I don't feel there is enough support.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Dear…
I'm so sorry I missed your message. That's very inconsiderate of me. As for the 'poor' condition of the photograph: this is how Erik Kessels found it added it to the book. The individual and unique prints added to this special edition book are all from old 'found' albums hence in often in poor condition. I hope this eases your concerns,
