Launching this week at Paris Photo is Viviane Sassen’s latest monograph, Etan & Me, from oodee, November 2013:

In a remote village in the jungle of Suriname, [Viviane Sassen] took portraits of this young man called Etan and combined them with blurred and scattered self-portraits,  reflecting on the ancient myths of Narcissus and the Origin of Painting by Pliny the Elder.

ETAN & ME is a story of love and loss, of Eros and Thanatos. It’s a story about the exploration of the Self and the Other. Are we ever able to truly know someone, to truly know ourselves?
