The Dutch photographer makes her American début with a vivacious group of images shot in Africa.

Her subjects are lithe young men, women, and children in brightly colored patterned clothes; because many of their faces are cast in shadow or otherwise obscured, their personalities are in their poses, usually choreographed by Sassen. In the most striking image, a little boy in nothing but shorts falls back across the head of a bare-chested man standing at the ocean's edge.
