Women in water | 2011
The archetypical association of femininity with water imagery, nature and the sphere of unconscious ricochets here against the aesthetics of ironic and analytical detachment. These bathing nudes are captured by flashlight in awkward, spontaneous poses, and the photographic images in their sharpness and clearness move away from the esoteric and romantic sensuousness and remind unmistakably of the modern urban party snapshots with its edgy, wasted, foolish and high protagonists. This aesthetic breaks the symbolic dimension of its theme, and at the same time it seems to be aware of the obsoleteness of the woman/nature metaphor as well as of the artistic tradition of depicting this subject.
