Red Ink (*signed*)

@ Pinckers, Max



Presentation by the artist:

" Red Ink was commissioned by The New Yorker for the article The Risk of Nuclear War with North Korea by Evan Osnos, September 18 issue, 2017 and supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

« In the resulting photographs, his lighting is complimentary yet forensic, scrutinizing the sheen of the propagandistic settings he visited during a trip that was heightened by the looming possibility of nuclear war. In a photograph taken at Pyongyang Orphans’ Secondary School, uniformed students sit in individual cubicles, like office workers, while a washed-out shade of pink pervades the classroom. The students look directly into the camera, save for a boy who has his eyes downturned. When I asked Pinckers about moments like these, where cracks in the North Koreans’ polished façade begin to show, he told me, “There’s a subversiveness that creeps into this kind of constructed situation. You can never really put a finger on it. You’re never really sure of anything.” »
