Elizaveta Porodina’s Gold Project

Young, German photographer Elizaveta Prodina sent us some of photos of her Gold Project, a series of photos in which she photographs her friends covered in gold paint symbolizing the quality and power of their friendship. This concept is also derived from her desire to create an alternate and unearthly civilization.

Both of her inspirations are conceptually intriguing but I could see more ways that they would be executed poorly than well. In her case, I feel she has done a beautifully job linking her concept with the final works. The work feels surreal.
