Faceless – Photography by Evelyn Bencicova
Evelyn Bencicova is a Berlin-based artist famous for her somber-hued photographs. She uses the human figure as a sculptural tool instead of an individual. Most of her images present flat, grey-tinged lighting that enhances the subject instead of retracting from it. According to one website: “The way Bencicova hides the faces of her models from the camera’s eye can be seen as a reference to the indiscriminate nature of death, as the increasing destruction of the private self found in modern culture, and the dehumanization of women within the political struggle over the control of their bodies.”
