"Maybe the most unnecessary book of 2016, but definitely the most funny one I came across. Chantal Rens is a Dutch artist that uses photography often as a starting point for her collages. In ‘You run around town like a fool and you think that it’s groovy’, she combines images of animals balancing a glass with spirits on them. You could ask yourself: Why, but this is exactly why the book is deadly funny. Numerous combinations of images, definitely never seen before. I would highly recommend this book that also probably the longest title of a photo book produced in 2016."
— Erik Kessels, Photobooks of 2016, PHOTOBOOKSTORE


"This book might become the most hilarious book published in 2016. Dutch artist Chantal Rens (1981) made collages showing all kinds of animals carrying on their back glasses of different alcoholic beverages. Simple, yet very well executed."
— Edie Peters, PhotoQ Bookshop

Use Me, Abuse Me - exhibition catalogue New York Photo Festival 2010, curated by Erik Kessels
Catalogue designed by Angela Lidderdale
Colour / black & white, 205 mm x 340 mm, 32 pages, soft cover, sticker book
ISBN 978-90-70478-28-5

Use me Abuse me looks at the trend toward exploring new technology within an image-rich culture. The exhibition focused on how today’s dominance of images and image-making technology influences artists and photographers. 
Now more than ever before photographs are easy to come by, easy to make and easy to distribute. 
Anyone, it seems, has the freedom to do pretty much anything. 
This glut sees photographers experimenting with pre-existing images and using them within their work like never before.
