a random sample of the seeings of my beings

[herman de vries' photoproject exposition complète] was intended to awaken consciousness to the undeniable truth that anything and everything, here and everywhere, is interesting enough to warrant attention. de vries demonstrates this in practice in the series of photoworks entitled the seeings of my beings (begun in 1973 and sporadically returned to over the next three years), each one itself consisting of a random sample of such 'seeings'. In this respect the seeings of my beings are like the 'visual chances' taken in Luang-Prabang. For it was by chance and change that de vries found himself in that particular Laotian town, and anywhere could have served as well for the purposes of the work, which is in itself simply exemplary. Similarly, the locations chosen for his series of seeings - Eschenau, Senegal, Morocco, Kathmandu - have in themselves no special significance. Wherever de vries found himself he might make such works. more »
