Hot book alert! ‘Elizaveta Porodina: Un/Masked’ is NEW from Hatje Cantz

What makes the photographs in this 160-page hardcover so special? It’s hard to say. And yet, have a look. Best known for her penetrating, emotionally-charged magazine photography, Russian-born, Munich-based Elizaveta Porodina was educated as a clinical psychologist. Only thirty-five years old, Porodina has produced a body of work that manages to provoke both delight and mystery, curiosity and discomfort. T magazine editor Coco Romack calls Porodina’s work melancholy and eerie. The “twist of beauty’s familiar forms into the uncanny is a trademark for Porodina,” Romack writes. Her references include “the collages of the Surrealist artist Max Ernst, as well as the bold colors and ‘sinister messages,’ as she calls them, of Italian giallo horror films.” Featured image is "Untitled, Paris," 2020.
