  • Catalogue Essay

    “For several years, Alla Esipovich had worked for a glossy magazine, moving in the world of photo sessions, photo stories and photo portraits. The format naturally dictated both the subject-matter (interesting situations, elegant objects and successful people) and the optics that represent desire (the desire to possess) as a burden of life. As  photographer, Alla Esipovich appears to have felt the need to break free of this chain of burdening circumstances – even in the magazine situation, that visually articulate the very concept of burdening circumstances and to reflect them as a special theme.” Dr. Alexander Borovsky, Ph.D.
