Argentinian born photographer Romina Ressia studied economics before dedicating her life to photography. Her work is influenced by classical masterpieces and deals with modern issues and their effects on society. Ressia’s series “What Do You Hide?” is just one example of how the artist responds to some of today’s problems, e.g. the tendency of covering our flaws by hiding ourselves behind artificial masks. We obey to clear rules for social acceptance, which makes it hard to distinguish between our real self and the constructed identities we adopt to please others. Her surreal portraits show bodies covered by fabric to dehumanize the subject as much as possible. Faces without identity, hidden behind veils to protect oneself against the judgement of others. She uses vivid colors, fashionable patterns and surrealistic elements to combine modern influences with her love for classical art. For more of her works visit www.rominaressiaph.com.
