Marianna Rothen Shadows In Paradise

Publisher B.frank Books

ISBN 9783906217086

Idea Code 17061

Published with Marianna Rothen’s first New York solo exhibition, at Steven Kasher Gallery, this second monograph by the photographer once again delves into a complex meditation on femininity. Through an opaque narrative suggestive of passion, loneliness, intrigue, and betrayal, Rothen’s latest series features strikingly beautiful characters styled in vintage costume and lingerie, creating a 1960s aesthetic. Shot at a location in the Catskills in upstate New York, its natural setting is, at first glance, idyllic. Yet all is not well in paradise, where the presence of a gun and a deteriorating house visually connect with the anxiety and melancholy of Rothen’s carefully staged scenes.
