Life Is Strange by Rob Moorees
‘Life is Strange’ displays and dissects the bewildering flood of images with which the twentieth century burst into the living rooms of bemused Dutch families. Thanks to the rapid development of photography, suddenly everyone was given a chance to take part in unknown events taking place in every corner of the world. ‘Photographic all-sorts from everywhere,’ as the Dutch illustrated magazine ‘Het Leven’ called them: photographs of dramatic accidents, extraordinary events, far-off peoples, remarkable inventions, unusual customs, and larger-than-life characters.
