UMBRA is an exhibition consisting of photography and multimedia works by acclaimed fashion photographer Viviane Sassen (Dutch, b. 1972). The work in UMBRA, which means shadow in Latin, emphasizes the play of light and shadow that is characteristic of her work. The artist is also known for her alluring color photographs in which form and content balance on the edge of abstraction. Most recently, Sassen was awarded the Society’s Honorary Fellowship award from The Royal Photographic Society, Bath, UK, (2015), and received the Gold Medal Deutsche Fotobuchpreis for Best Photobook 2016, Stuttgart, Germany (2015).
