Porodina’s early years were impacted by the brutalist buildings in Moscow and her mother who introduced her daughter to art. Stored in her unconscious, art became the extension and expression of “her self," implying that every single one of her photographs is a self-portrait. Art became—and still is—an inevitable, and inseparable, part of her. Porodina’s academic upbringing in post-Soviet Russia and her interest in emotional behavior led her to study clinical psychology. This background and her striving towards greater understanding of herself, her environment, and others, informed her move to photography. It became a frame by which she is not limited—photography is just another medium that allows to stimulate the mind by showing, rather than by speaking, since the unconscious is not verbal either.

ELIZAVETA PORODINA (*1987, Moscow) is a Russian artist, photographer, and psychologist known for her surrealist themes and use of symbolism. She lives and works in Germany. Her clients include Dior, Carolina Herrera, Jo Malone, Moncler, Vogue, among others.
