Surys has been one of my favourite photographers for a while now, capturing beautiful people and fashion in an otherworldly aesthetic straight from a lost era.
Creating sumptuous and often melancholic imagery, Surys’ unique take on fashion photography has truly established her as one-to-watch. Artworks from her collection, plus brand new pieces will be on display at her first solo London show.
Surys' approaches each shot as an auteur, using analogue camera equipment to capture the shots and then painstakingly developing the photographs before printing them and adding her own creative flair with paint, oil, gelatine and other materials. Paulina's photographs are otherworldly, existing somewhere between fairy-tale and nightmare, referencing religious iconography and ritual.
Surys’ highly original photography draws on an extensive range of influences from all areas of art history. It is her interest in the old that fires her experiments into new artistic territories. Turning her back on modern digital manipulation and choosing compositions that recall classical art, her work has an air of symbolic mystery usually found in the great religious oil paintings.
