ABOUT THE BOOK
For her first book Play – about play as an attitude to life – Eva Veldhoen photographed the Lego structures of her five-year-old son. They marked the beginning of her personal search for play. Eva: ‘to me, play means following joy, curiosity, my intuition. It’s about the power of imagination, experiment, about learning and adjusting while doing. Play requires me to trust the process without knowing the results. I had to relearn this. My son’s advice: just begin, it always turns into something.’
Play was nominated for the 2021 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, in the First PhotoBook Category.
