Veenman Publishers are pleased to announce the book release of On Display by the Dutch master of still life photography,  Maurice Scheltens.

In "On Display" Maurice Scheltens demonstrates the art of staging and reassembling objects into surreal miniature worlds. His style is playful and highly personalised and his work ranges from art pieces to applied projects and editorial commissions. Rearranged and reedited for this glossy-book, the photographs in On Display represent an overview of Scheltens’s work of the last ten years. Alongside commissions from Vitra and Nike, Fantastic Man and Wallpaper, it also includes work for galleries and museums. An essay by Emily King reflects on Scheltens’s multi-layered constructions and cross-references the worlds of fashion, design, architecture, painting, photography and graphics.

The book will be released on the 14th of November, between 6 - 8 pm, during the Paris Photo at Colette, 213 rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris, Franc
