Born in Moldova in 1994, photographer Masha Sardari now lives and works in Florida. Discovering her art form in 2010, she quickly developed her own imaginative style, characterized by a “square format, deep colors, and mysterious events.” These events are set in secret places—such as a clearing in a forest, or the remains of a burnt-out house—making the viewer a voyeur into something private and profound. The models are crouched or lying still; with titles such as “The Incubation,” “The Lamentation,” and “At the Edge of a Mountain,” there is sense of of radical loss or change—perhaps even death—which verges on a form of spiritual transformation.
