amelia ii

she is in high school (2016)

Kristina Varaksina

Limited

The She is in High School series reveals the discrepancy between the image of fashion models we see in magazines and their actual place in life. The girls participated in the project are all professional models and are only 15-17 years old. Getting their makeup and hair done and getting all dressed up they model for fashion magazines and advertising, where their pictures often mislead the viewer and set unrealistic standards, but the girls are being mislead themselves. They don’t know what they are anymore as they are trained to represent grown up women leading luxury life. In these photographs the girls are shown what they really are - high school students, awkward in their own bodies and not fully aware of their beauty.

ARTIST

Russian-born Kristina Varaksina has resided in the USA since 2010 and currently lives and works in New York. Varaksina’s focus is to capture human emotion and the psychological impressions of her subjects' mind – permitting the characters to project their internal reality. Works undertaken are keen to explore a female and child perspective, evoking their thoughts, dreams and hopes. Before getting her MFA degree in Photography from Academy of Art University San Francisco she worked for more than 5 years as an Art Director in international advertising agencies in Moscow.
