Vee Speers – The Birthday Party: Childhood Memories You May Not Have Had

One of the most popular galleries at Paris-Photo last month, was the Jackson Gallery of Fine Art.
And the biggest draw were the photographs of Vee Speers.Click on the link and take a look at the series.

The beautifully simple, desaturated yet crisp, photographs of children from her Birthday Party series, brought the attendees and collectors back to the booth multiple times. We were included in that group.
There was a fresh look to the grouping of 8 images on display that made them accessible, yet haunting at the same time. Collectors would buy one, then come back for a few more from the series.
An additional treat was the appearance of the artist herself, who gave us a little background on the series.

We feel that hearing from the artist herself in this video will give you another insight, better than we can put into words here.

Her book will be available, although sold out at the event, on Amazon this spring. If we find out where you can get it before, we’ll tip it to you.
And it’s a clean book with a proper size for the images, giving them the space they deserve.

We first saw her work last year at Paris-Photo and the prints were about 3 feet high and quite imposing. The smaller size exhibited this year, we’re sure, helped in the high sales volume.
