Dutch designers and cultural producers have an edge up on most the planet. The cats who put out Useful Photography are awesome. It's very hard to come up with an original concept and realization for any photo mag or series. these banal pics somehow make this functional, institutional, commercial and found material refreshingly new.
I ran across the project at the Atheneum bookstore in Amsterdam but didn't get a copy. Am hating myself for that. all copies are sold out.
