newspaper:Oudt collects newspaper photos of disasters and he holds strong views on the reproduction and positioning of the image within a design. Partly due to his background as a printer, he has a surprising way of handling images. With reproductions he doesn’t strive to portray the work as realistically as possible, but to use typography and the design in such a way that the work’s character or soul is revealed. In Esther’s contribution she sets out on a graphical exploration using Oudt’s disaster photos - and his stories - as her point of departure.
