A girl posing with a flowerpot from which her own hair sprouts. What could be a better metaphor for a world where we are what pr managers and stylists tell us we are? Bara Prasilova’s images have the power to instil doubt as well as to carry us away…
“Through photography, I try to understand human relationships and connections. Using invisible threads, we either bind someone to us, or drive them away. Threads of our feelings, anxieties, and fears, which, like our hair, we are afraid to let loose,” says Bara in offering a key to decipher the Evolve series.
The Evolve series was created for the Hasselblad Masters exhibition, where the winners of individual categories of the Hasselblad Masters Awards tackled the topic of evolution. Bara Prasilova won in the category of Fashion Photography for her images of the ‘AirForce’ collection for Hana Zarubova.
