After returning from years of war coverage, Peter van Agtmael tries to piece together the memory, identity, race, class, and family, in a landscape which has become as surreal as the war he left behind.
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.
