About the artwork

Having travelled the length and breadth of the United States in their camper van, the atypical photographer couple Formento + Formento continue to stage the American women that they meet en route, with the series Circumstance ? America Down on Bruised Knees. BJ and Richeille Formento have together developed the hidden story of these damsels in distress, set against a modern landscape, questioning the limits of the land of the free. Through the use of sophisticated lighting and the implicit and quasi-systematic violence of the scenes that they create, each of their photographs denounces an omnipresent tension, extending beyond the frame of the image, as though the photograph was a thriller caught in freeze frame. In these recent pictures taken in Miami in 2016, the artists pay tribute to the cinematography of Alfred Hitchcock, the self-portraits embodied by feminist Cindy Sherman, or the realist paintings of Edward Hopper. They explain their work with a quote from photographer Diane Arbus: "The world is full of fictional characters in search of their story."

Ruslan Bolgov was born in 1974 in Klaipeda, Lithuania, on the shores of the Baltic Sea. His earliest photographs were taken as a teenager, but he didn’t take the experience very far at the time. It wasn’t until the end of his studies in economics and finance that he seriously app...

LIA MSTISLAVSKAYA

Lia Mstislavskaya was born in 1985 in Russia and still lives in Moscow today. Her first photos at age 17 were self-portraits taken with the sole purpose of “having headshots like the stars,” she says. At the beginning, being a photographer didn’t even cross her mind: “When I star...
