Olga Pokhodzey / Growing Up
Russian-born artist Olga Pokhodzey was focused solely on street photography before turning towards self-portraiture and creating the series seen here – Growing Up. Be sure to check out the rest of the series on her site.
“This series of self portraits is about relationships between people and things. Our surrounding objects were made for our comfort and designed to help us in everyday life and creative activities, but there is another side — sometimes we feel tied too tight with them, as if things appropriate us. I work from home, and sometimes spend 12–14 hours a day in front of my computer. In such periods I practically don’t walk out, and then I begin to complain to my friends about feeling like growing into my chair. I decided to show this metaphor literally. Besides the theme of ingrowth, this series is about envy for the essence of objects. Compared to the human body, things are more sustainable.”
