Céline van Balen (1965) and Esther Kroon (1966–1992) were part of a generation of Dutch photographers who gained international artistic reputations in the early 1990s; both their careers, however, came to a premature end. Helga Paris (1938) was born in Gollnow, Pommeren, now Goleniów in Poland. As a result of the Cold War her remarkable oeuvre was long practically unknown west of the Iron Curtain; only now, in her old age, is Paris’ work being given the attention it deserves outside Germany. Futures Past & Presentincludes the graduation work of the promising young Danish photographer Julie Greve (1991), whose distinctive work shows a quality and a talent for portraiture that is a match for Van Balen, Kroon and Paris.
