Post Lot Text
Slovakian photographer Michal Pudelka is a rising star. His gorgeous, eerie images – impeccable girls posed as if for fashion editorials, but tinged with a surreal and sinister flavour – take cues from Soviet and high fashion aesthetics. A distinct sense of humour and keen eye for arresting interplays of colour instil his images with a hazy, dreamlike beauty, reminiscent of the cinema of David Lynch or Sofía Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides. Conjuring this uncanny elegance isn’t easy: Pudelka’s strictly analogue approach requires careful preparation, and he often designs and makes outfits specifically for each shoot. ‘Thinking is the most important part of my work,’ he says. ‘I like when a photograph has more meanings – so you can stare at it for a longer time, or over and over again.’
