The Dutch artist, designer, curator and book publisher has been shortlisted for The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2016 for his Unfinished Father exhibition.
Kessels’ father, who suffered a stroke, is a restorer of old Fiat cars, the most recent of which was unfinished but now features in his 2016 exhibit at the Photographers’ Gallery in London. The photographs surrounding the Fiat Topolino are records his father made of each stage of the work.
In general I’m not interested in a single photograph. I’m more interested in a story, or the story behind it, or how a series of photographs can tell a certain story
