"SHE": Surreal Study of Woman by Viviane Sassen


Photographer Viviane Sassen is one of the most important contemporary artists in the world, both touching fashion and fine art with her use of geometry and body abstraction. The Dutch photographer has her own visual code: her atmospheres are surreal, marked with silhouettes, contrasts, long shadows where reality and fiction meet, and it's impeccable that these images arise from everyday life.

Sassen's models are of women, and they are distorted through her camera by manipulating their nature or approaching them by parts. Many among these portraits look inanimate, giving an illusion that they are paintings or abstract elementts instead of photographic subjects.

Catch the recent display of SHE at the Galeria Carla Sozzani in Milan. running through November 12.
