Viviane Sassen’s Latest Photobook Honors Female Friendship

Celebrated photographer Viviane Sassen’s latest work pays tribute to her muse and creative collaborator Roxane Danset, in celebration of their rich and long-standing friendship.

Created as a follow-up to “Roxane I” (2012), the series of works posits Danset’s nude body as a bare canvas, as a symbol for the projection of various archetypes onto the woman: Mother, provider, seducer, muse. “I feel that Roxane and I have grown in our mutual trust and understanding, we dare to take it a step further,” explained Sassen in a recent interview. “So the nudes in the new book were a logical next step in exposing ourselves even further to each other.” “Roxane II” (published by Oodee) launches in May and is available here for pre-order.
