Series Monographs on Dutch Photographers, Volume 14
Author Frits Gierstberg

The author recounts the life and work of Oscar van Alphen, whose development as a photographer and theorist of photography reflect the shift in the focus of social documentary photography over the past 50 years: from that of recording social reality to one in which reflection on perception itself and the significance of the image are equally, if not more, important.
