    In this video interview, Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink presents her new book "Car Girls" (Aperture, 2009). Hassink explains how she began this project five years ago. Photographing major car shows in seven different cities on three continents, Hassink discusses how she captured moments of these women’s performances and then how she “mapped” the project by dividing these car girls into different categories. Her project takes a subversively fun yet conceptually astute approach to issues of gender, power, and commodification. Hassink also speaks about the sexy and clever design of the book by award-winning Irma Boom and shares her memorable experience as she dresses up as a car girl in one of the auto shows.

            Watch a short interview with Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink speaking about her book "Domains of Influence: Arab Women Business Leaders in a New Economy," part of the Aperture Curated Collection. In this clip, Hassink explains the origin of the project, how she collaborated with the The Arab International Women’s Forum to reach out to these thirty-six powerful Arab women from eighteen Arab countries and created a unique portrait of them, capturing both the boardroom tables and dining room tables and not their faces. Hassink gives us both an alienated and incredibly intimate view of how her subjects conceive of and project their identities and positions. In turn, as Hassink writes, “This kind of portraiture reveals a great deal about the business women and how people create their work and life environments to reflect their cultures and also their personalities.” Hassink also gives insight into the design of the book created by Irma Boom. She finally explains the different layers of her artistic projects from the aesthetic to the social level. It is exactly this type of powerful, idiosyncratic approach that has earned her a wide range of admirers. “I have noticed over the years that my work is not only appreciated in the art world but also in other areas of society,” notes Hassink. “Architectural, sociological and economic readings have all been welcome contributions to the way I think about the work.”

              As one of the participants at the Fotoboekenmarathon (main theme: quality versus quantity), held on Dec 16, 2012 at the photography museum Huis Marseille in Amsterdam we asked Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink (e.g. Car Girls, Table of Power): overlooking the enormous quantities of photography and photobooks, what do you do to reach the required level of quality in your work? 'It is very rare that I see a book that is incredibly produced or brilliantly put together. A few books every year.'

                In conjunction with the Prix Pictet’s Power, which opened at Aperture Gallery on December 5, 2013, Aperture hosted a conversation between two of Prix Pictet's short-listed photographers, Edmund Clark and Jacqueline Hassink. This was Prix Pictet’s fourth cycle, and 650 photographers were nominated for the prize. Of the winning work, Kofi A. Annan, former secretary general of the United Nations and honorary president of the Prix Pictet, writes, “The work of the short-listed photographers provides a vivid portrait of human vulnerability. But they also remind us that the same forces that might engender despair can also be the source of great hope. They evoke a heartening reminder of our capacity for humanity, courage, and solidarity in the face of adversity.” Following an introduction by Deputy Director Sarah McNear, Edmund Clark and Jacqueline Hassink discussed the evolution of their projects, their experiences photographing, and their approach to the theme of power. Clark’s work, which took him inside Guantanamo Bay and to residences of former inmates, provided an interesting contrast to Hassink’s work, Tables of Power which brought her to the residences and boardrooms of some of the most influential women in the Middle East. They ended the evening by inviting the audience to ask questions in a brief Q&A session.
