2023 > Eva Fomitskih - The Cover

The project showcases a series of self-portraits that delve into the complexities of the female image and the societal pressures that come with it.

I use my own body as a tool to explore the tension between the subjective and objective perspectives of the female image. Through the creation of mise-en-scenes, I reveal subpersonalities and peel back the layers of my social "I" to showcase the masks that women wear to conform to societal expectations.

The project challenges the traditional stereotype of a woman being associated with beauty, tenderness, and sexuality, and highlights the consequences of constantly striving to fit into these expectations. By giving a voice to the experiences of one woman, "Cover" aims to start a larger conversation about the impact of societal pressures on the female identity.
