Quote from collectors daily: ‘This box set project from Paulien Oltheten takes a straightforward set of photographs and turns them into something altogether more elegant and sophisticated. Using a fallen lamppost as a visual divider, Oltheten made split second images that capture passersby on both sides of angled line, not unlike Paul Graham’s recent street photography. But in the construction of the box, she’s placed the prints in loose down-inside insets, allowing the viewer to pull them up (using a handy ribbon) and then order them as they see fit. This turns a rigidly sequential activity into something more open ended, and the angles of the streetlamp can be aligned and reoriented in different ways. So very simple, but so very smartly designed. Priced at €950.’
