I was being attracted by Maria Svarbova photos. Maria has developed a distinctive style early on – departing from traditional portraits focused on experimentation with space, color, and atmosphere. The human body in Maria’s photographs is more or less a prop. Without individuality or emotions. As part of the careful composition, beautiful alien figures create still, dream-like scenes with ordinary objects. There is a silent tension. The drama is hidden under a clean, smooth surface. Even in her more ornamental, nostalgic works, there is a sense of cold, detachment, soothing pastels, geometry, and visual purity, that give a sense of otherworldly order. An undisturbed visual pleasure that is unattainable in real life like the river. water. Different texture with deep blue, light blue, dark green and light green. And a mix of flowers.
