Marianna Rothen | Snow and Rose

45.00

“Snow and Rose & other tales” is Marianna Rothen’s first monograph and showcases her work over the past few years. “In the lonely fortress of her domestic home, life is unbearable.” With those dramatic words, the viewer is invited into the world created by Marianna Rothen, a fictional account of women who left the world of men behind and moved to a remote and peaceful place to live amongst themselves. Rothen’s photographs are staged like homages to the films of Antonioni, Bergman or Godard; they seem like film stills and intrigue the viewer to search for and identify the references. “Snow and Rose & other tales” is laid out like a movie, a slow transition from despair of a domestic life to freedom and independence. Marianna Rothen’s photographs are both unsettling and sexy, humorous and serene, but above all, they are incredibly beautiful portraits of women with a great sense for styling and set design. 

First edition: 500 copies | hardcover | linen bound with a photograph tipped-in and an elastic band | designed by Alexandra Bruns
