Elizaveta Porodina is a Munich-based (Moscow-born) fashion and fine-art photographer. Her work is experimental, bending reality with colour-burst surrealism and black-and-white romanticism. The emotional symbolism underlying her work derives from her studies in clinical psychology. Featured here is her contribution to Radical Beauty, a photo project aimed at challenging beauty normativity in contemporary culture. The figure shown is Lily Moore, a model and actress born with Down’s Syndrome whose work “aims to inspire others with disabilities by outlining that anyone is capable of achieving their dreams.” Porodina’s creative vision and Moore’s magnetic presence is a mesmerizing and empowering combination.
