“Illusion of beauty” by Karina Fomina
“I’m looking for the perfect beauty.
I am not familiar with the photographed person, not knowing her inner world. I admire her beauty, creating the perfect image in my head, very far from the real person, close-here in my lens at the same time. It’s a quest for an ideal, that doesn’t really exist. After all, the world is not perfect. So we are. But I can’t give up my illusions, I love them so much, though I feel their impotence and fragility.”
