WHOLE the book

Dutch photographers FREUDENTHAL/ VERHAGEN publish WHOLE, a tribute to their monumental oeuvre spanning more than 25 years

WHOLE has been released both in a soft cover edition and in a collectible hard cover edition including original photographic print (Limited Edition of 100).

WHOLE is dedicated to the entirely uncommon, weird and wonderful body of work of fashion and fine art photographers Carmen Freudenthal and Elle Verhagen, dating all the way back to the start of their collaboration in 1989. Edited and designed by art director Karen Heuter, WHOLE is a journey into their surreal, colorful and quaint universe.

WHOLE contains a selection of 150 works by Freudenthal/Verhagen, decontextualised from their original series and chronology and rearranged by color. The book’s unique edit brings new life to each and every work, be it from their fashion editorials for magazines such as i-D, Dazed & Confused, Flash Art, NRC De LUXE and Harpers Bazaar, their long time collaboration with fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm, or commissioned campaigns, portraits and museum works.

“For over two decades Freudenthal and Verhagen have been consistently working in their very own style that can be described as slightly sur- realistic and hyper realistic. It’s a unique style that has opened up many opportunities in photography.”
Erik Kessels

WHOLE features introductions by Bernhard Willhelm (fashion designer), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, artist, curator and collector), Jose Teunissen (Dean School of Design and Technology, London College of Fashion) and Mo Veld (fashion writer and teacher Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam).
