THE PORTRAIT WITH A LOVER
The project continues the theme of the behavior of a man in the society and in dealing with people. The author asked her friends and strangers to imagine their ideal photo with their lovers and to send a sample. What will be the pose of the couple? What will they do? How will they look like? Who will take more space? Who will be better seen? There is a stereotype that women like “romantic” pictures of lovers. And what pictures do men like? The artist is interested in what pictures men like, from the overall plot to the plastic of bodies. Then she makes another photograph of the scene, playing the characters with her friends. The woman is always the same, it is the author, but men are different. It turns out that one man simulates the sample desired by another. They together create a catalogue and arrange the sent samples.
