Twisted Streets #8




Maybe you have already seen it at this year's New York Photo Festival, but this is the Twisted Streets issue 8. Twisted Streets is a brief encounter with the intertwined, twisted, distorted, contorted, puzzling world of Boudewijn Bollmann (1983), who has committed himself to the art of deviation. In his latest photo zine, an ode to Rotterdam and its citizens in four episodes/directions of the wind/city districts, Bollmann proves he is a talented Jack of all trades. What at first appears to be random snapshots combined with scribbled handwritten notes is, on closer inspection, a cleverly edited bric-a-brac in the best tradition of Surrealism. Bollmann succeeds in making the familiar look exotic in what can already be regarded as a collectors item.
