Elizaveta Porodina
Photographer

In her experimental fashion and fine art photography, Elizaveta Porodina travels through time and space, extracting the underlying emotions in her entrancing productions. The Moscow born studied clinical psychologist plays with melancholic symbolism, sets connotations, sometimes ambiguous, sometimes honest and obvious – her range widely varying between cinematic, fashion and almost documentary imagery. Whether in dramatic black and white or vividly colored artworks, the Munich based photographer is a master of dark romanticism.

Projects and publications include Adobe, BMW Mini, Condé Nast, Luis Vuitton, Elle, Numéro, and Stern.

Exhibitions include Das Bilderbuch der Elizaveta Porodina, Ostlicht Vienna, Kadavar Berlin, FOAM Photography Museum, Dark Iconography, Bikini Diaries, Berlin, and FORUM 047: Elizaveta Porodina – Smoke & Mirrors, Münchner Stadtmuseum.

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis.
