Sannes Sannes: "Erotomaniac" 
Vintage sixties erotica


Sanne Sannes was a tripped-out fashion art photographer who lived his short life hard and fast. After almost four decades of obscurity, a unique collection from the oeuvre of the Dutch photographer Sanne Sannes (1937-1967) comes to light again. 

Sannes, during his brief photographic career in the sixties, became renown for his taste for the erotic, his fascination with women and seduction. His imagery recalls the atmosphere of the sixties, which acted as an impulse both for his models and for his own talent in photography.   

After his untimely death at the age of 30 in a car accident, with only an eight year photographic career of innovating art, Sannes oeuvre is still on par with internationally acclaimed Dutch photographers such as Gerard Fieret and Ed van der Elsken, who in the sixties defined Dutch black-and-white photography.
