photography The gold project is a photography project by the Russian fashion photographer Elizaveta Porodina. On her website her style is described as Glam Rock and fairy worlds often with sexual aesthetic which is shaped by her psychological knowledge and full of hidden emotion. The gold project fits this description properly. For this project Porodina was inspired by feelings of melancholy and nostalgia, which make the photos fairylike. The golden colors give the photos a magical power and the models almost seem from another planet. These pictures are quasi-documentary photography about an alternate civilization that’s trying to figure out a way to live in our strange, unfamiliar world.
