Oggi ArtAbout.it vi presenta il progetto fotografico della russa Karina Sherbakova dal titolo “Second Nature”. Lei stessa ce lo descrive così:
This project is named “Second Nature” and the name is to reflect a slight game of words. It means “habit”, but can also be read literary as “another personality that one beholds”. Under the influence of circumstances, society or whatever else, people find their ways of communication. They might need to be more that – less-this to fit into a specific crowd, or just make a certain impression on someone. So we happen to pick a character to represent us, instead of being ourselves, to defend the inner fragility. At some point this mask might just stick to ones face making it hard to define where he starded and what he really is. I personally don’t think it’s possible to be 100% yourself today no matter what’s happening to you. Everyone happens to negotiate and compromise in life, do and say things we would rather not. But we should always know, who we are, what we want to be and what do we seem to be, and how to keep those in balance.
