Hidden Beauty Brought To Light By Cristina Coral
Self-taught Italian photographer Cristina Coral captures “traces of the internal dialogue” in her ‘Hidden Beauty’series.
“My female figures are closed in their intimacy almost in self-analysis of themselves.”In featuring women with their facial features hidden – behind curtains, draped over furniture or simply turned away from the camera – Coral teases out the complicated relationship between presence and absence. Her figures appear “closed in their intimacy almost in self-analysis of themselves, in introspection and research,” she explains. Coral’s work has been featured in a wide range of publications including Vogue and Art Tribune, exhibited throughout Italy and Europe, and won several photography awards.
