Maria Svarbova

The atmosphere that Maria Svarbova depicts through a palette of pastel and overexposed tones projects the spectator into a sanitized world in which the characters has chosen to give up any kind of extravagance that might unmask them. Like inert and robotic figurines, they rigidly evolve from one photograph to the next without parading their feelings. Time seems to have stopped and the swimmers have no other idea than to see themselves reflected in the perfectly still water of the swimming pool. Reworking the concept of the photo novel that originated through a combination of cinema and comic strips, Maria Svarbova's photographs are a successsion of short scenes in which the frontality and absence of contrasts removes any narrative dimension in favour of the fullness of the photographic surface. The use of retouching software allows her to master this careful and stringent aesthetic with extreme precision, attenuating differences as though all individuals were the same, losing all of their individuality and identity.
