Ira Thiessen / PRIVET GERMANIA

In the project “Privet Germania“ (Hello Germany) I am concerned with the topic of lifestyle within German-Russian culture and its hybrid identity. I stage surreal portraits by using an analog camera and combining elements from painting, theatre and atelier photography. “Culture is the special form in which the shared world views, values, mannerisms and social interpretative patterns of a certain social group can find their expression. It reveals itself particularly through the traditions and customs of everyday life.“
