Manuel Vason’s new book Double Exposures captures the artists pushing the boundaries of performance art

– Jenny Stevens, ‘Torture Trilogies and Octopus Heads: The Worlds Most Extreme Performance Artists – in Pictures’The Guardian

 

 

Exploring a breadth of body shapes, shocking scenes and humorous diptychs, Vason’s work creates an exciting new language of the most fleeting of art forms.

– Felix Petty, ‘Manuel Vason on Documenting the Ephemeral Magic of Performance Art’,  i-D Magazine

 

 

Unlike his previous work however, Vason also trains the camera on himself. By letting these artists sculpt his own body into a new, specially commissioned, work of art, Vason finally makes the crossover from observer to performer.

– Amelia Abraham, ‘Manuel Vason Photographs the Body at Its Limits’VICE

 

 

The result is a publication which relies on abundances of mutual trust.

– Bojana Jankovic, ‘The Necessity to Speak: Photographer Manuel Vason Unpacks His Book, ‘Double Exposures”Run-Riot

 

 

With the theme presenting ‘performance as photography, and photography as performance,’ Vason perfectly meshes these two worlds to create pages of visually stimulating images as these creative entities collide.
