#08/11 DANA LIXENBERG
Dana Lixenberg (1964 Amsterdam, NL) is a Dutch photographer who pursues long-term projects with a primary focus on individuals and communities on the margins of society. The power of her work arises in the intimacy and the absence of social stereotyping. In addition to focussing on unknown individuals and communities in her personal work, Lixenberg has been commissioned by a wide variety of magazines to photograph well known figures, including Gil Scott Heron, George Clooney, Heath Ledger, Prince, Valentino, Whitney Houston, among numerous others, giving them the same visual treatment as her unknown subjects. For the “Publicity. Publicity. Wohoooow!” group show, she produced a series of four portraits of Patta family members.
