Corina Gertz

The Averted Portrait

Corina Gertz photographs women from around the world wearing traditional national dress. Her focus is on the quieter side of the portrait - the figure seen from behind. The individual remains hidden, so that information is conveyed only by the clothing.

Splendid fabrics with sumptuous embroidery shine with sculptural and painterly intensity against a deep black background, captured in a clear, expressive composition. Her portraits tell tales of traditional wisdom, conventions, customs, and practices, reflecting Gertz’s interest in the aesthetic, political, social, and cultural context.
