Dark and dramatic, take a peek at Laura Kovanska's shadowy backstage polaroids.
Text by Gabriela Holesova
Known for her unique and distinctive style, Laura is a notable figure in the commercial and fashion photography sphere with numerous publications in international high-profile magazines. Born in Czechoslovakia, the photographer often channels the spirit of Slavic youth in her work – fearless and carefree. You can always sense a tinge of rebellion and impudence which is where Laura’s power lies: in capturing dynamic emotion.
In this polaroid series, the photographer brings us to what could easily look like an enigmatic secret gathering, conveyed through fuzzy dark shots. In fact, it is just a peek into what the backstage of a fashion shoot looks like. Presenting the creations of young fashion designers from the Czech cities Brno and Zlin, the connecting theme stemmed from stories of space travel, best enjoyed when embarking on the intergalactic journeys together.
