Jeroen Kramer
Room 103
HC, 24 x 17 cm., 72 pp.
Noorderlicht 2009


"What is a photograph worth? A thousand words, as they say in journalism? Or perhaps just 203 words, as Jeroen Kramer discovers one day in Baghdad. Is a picture worth your happiness? Your self-respect? Your name? Your life?
Starkly honest and coldly beautiful, Room 103 is an unblinking study not only of life and death in the strife-torn middle east but also of Kramer's inner struggle to come to terms with the human failings, aesthetic limitations and brutal insights of his chosen path.
Born in Amsterdam and now based in Lebanon, Jeroen Kramer has spent the last nine years photographing the Middle East." (Borealis)
