Viviane Sassen’s Latest Photobook Honors Female Friendship

Scroll

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.
