dbo:abstract
  • Dana Lixenberg (Amsterdam, 1964) is een Nederlands fotografe. Aanvankelijk vertrok Lixenberg op haar achttiende naar New York om te werken als au pair. Door een avondcursus kwam ze daar in aanraking met fotografie, waarop ze naar Londen ging voor een opleiding aan het Londen College of Printing. Vervolgens volgde ze nog een studie fotografie aan de Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Na beide opleidingen te hebben afgerond ging Lixenberg in 1990 terug naar New York en sindsdien woont en werkt ze afwisselend in New York en Amsterdam. In 1993 brak Lixenberg in Amerika door met een reportage voor Vrij Nederland waarin ze het stereotiepe beeld van de bewoners van Watts (Los Angeles) vastlegde. Het New Yorkse blad Vibe toonde interesse en vanaf dat moment begon Lixenbergs carrière in Amerika te lopen. Het handelsmerk van Lixenberg is een 4 bij 5-camera op statief. Ze houdt ervan tegenstellingen te creëren met haar werk en mensen in pure vorm te portretteren. Lixenberg houdt zich bezig met alle lagen van de bevolking. Dit blijkt uit het boek United States (2001), waarin mensen uit verschillende lagen van de Amerikaanse bevolking staan. Naast gewone mensen, had Lixenberg een aantal Amerikaanse beroemdheden, zoals Whitney Houston en Prince voor de camera. Naast fotografie houdt Lixenberg zich bezig met regisseren. In 2005 regisseerde ze de videoclip ‘One Word’ van de Nederlandse zangeres Anouk. (nl)

Her work has been widely exhibited and can be found in collections worldwide. Lixenberg pursues long-term projects with a primary focus on individuals and communities on the margins of society, such as Jeffersonville, Indiana, a collection of landscapes and portraits of the small town’s homeless population photographed over a seven-year period, and The Last Days of Shishmaref, which portrays an Inupiaq community on an eroding island of the coast of Alaska. Furthermore, she shot many portraits of celebrities, including Prince and Whitney Houston in an honest and introspective way. All her work is done with a large format camera. The power of her work arises in the intimacy and the absence of social stereotyping. Decisive in her career was the first series of photos she made in 1993 of the Imperial Courts (Los Angeles). Lixenberg succeeded to portray the residents as distinctive and charismatic personalities, without direct references to their gang. The exhibition 'Imperial Courts, 1993-2015’ at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam (2015) is the first comprehensive presentation of the Imperial Courts series, spanning a period of twenty-two years. Through her photographs, a three channel video projection and an audio installation, Lixenberg offers an intimate glimpse into the everyday life of this community and its residents. The exhibition is accompanied by a new book, Imperial Courts, 1993-2015, designed by Roger Willems and published by Roma publications. Dana Lixenberg is represented by GRIMM in Amsterdam. (en)
