abstract
Dutch/American photographer Wijnanda Deroo has followed and photographed the renovation and transformation of the Rijksmuseum since 2004. This beautiful book designed by Irma Boom is being published to mark the museum's re-opening in 2013, bringing together the best of these photos. Deroo won international fame with her intriguing, meticulous photos, devoid of human presence, of the interiors of offices, hotels, public buildings, restaurants and homes. For the Rijksmuseum she accumulated, in the same way and over a period of nearly 10 years, an impressive period document of the new Rijksmuseum under construction. The photos of the museum, which is steadily inching toward its re-opening, bear her unmistakable stamp. The work of Wijnanda Deroo (b. 1955) is part of leading collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

Her photographs are included in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
