In her experimental fashion and fine art, Elizaveta Porodina travels through time and space, extracting the underlying emotions in her entrancing productions. The Moscow born is a clinical psychologist who plays with melancholic symbolism, sets connotations, sometimes ambiguous, sometimes honest and obvious. Whether in dramatic black and white or vividly colored artworks, the Munich based photographer is a master of dark romanticism.
Entirely self-taught, her work is cinematic, she captures something very human, reestablishing fashion photography as a platform for both artistic expression and anthropological query.
Before working for the likes of Philip Plein and Louis Vuitton, Elizaveta was a clinical psychologist treating patients in psychiatry. Her photographic aesthetic is modern, experimental and inspired from Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn.
