Photographer Elene Usdin likes to play with reality by altering it with elements of fantasy to create metaphorical stages for her photographs. In this series titled “Femme D’interieur”, which can be translated as “Domesticated Women”. Usdin shares, “I chose to observe the backgrounds that encase, and to some extent determine, the way women are portrayed, from a Florentine countryside to the overwrought interior of a painter’s studio.
These portraits reveal more than they intend, they reveal a great deal about the social position of a woman, from the way she is appareled and coiffed to the attitude she is made to strike.” By rearranging the images of these women she begins to find her own language of decoding these stereotypes with a more abstracted objectification.
