Olena Slyesarenko_Photographer




In the book of Maria Short “Context and narrative”, I had discover the above photo from Ukrainian photographer Olena Slyesarenko from her project Pickled. It has been very inspiring to see how a photographer has presented another variation of portraiture achieving an artistic and dreamlike feeling. I also find it very ingenious that she has used water to “force” her subjects to relax and have not contract over the resulting image. She even managed to make water look unnoticeable making her images even more powerful.
