Elene Usdin (b.1971) is a french photographer

Parisian photographer Elene Usdin (b.1971) likes to play with reality by adding elements of fantasy to create metaphorical stages for her photographs.
For this series titled “Femme D’interieur”, (Domesticated Women) Usdin shares, “I chose to observe the backgrounds that encase, and to some extent determine the way women are portrayed; from a Florentine countryside to the overwrought interior of a painter’s studio. These portraits reveal more than they intend. They reveal a great deal about the social position of women, from the way they are appareled and coiffed to the attitude they are made to strike.”
By rearranging the images of these women she begins to find her own language to decode these stereotypes with a more abstract objectification.
