Usdin, Elene - Elene Usdin STORIES new in seal
Superb color photographs brought together for the first time highlighting the overflowing imagination of this photographer who stages her body in surprising, dreamlike, funny or erotic situations. Photography is for Elene Usdin a way of putting into images the fantasies that haunt her, her daydreams and her deep reflections not hesitating to fall backwards, treating her naked or transvestite body like that of a disjointed dancer. The disguise and the accessories are intimately linked to his questioning of appearance, a sort of jubilant search for identity.
“My photographs are the theater of my fantasies, revealing the intimacy of my own story. I like to reinvent places, to appropriate objects to divert them from their initial function in order to organize the space around me. The disguise and the accessories are intimately linked to my questioning of appearance. How does the model reveal itself through the role it plays in front of the lens? He can escape by hiding his face behind a mask, yet he abandons himself to the photographer's desires, then to the viewer's gaze. "
