Futuro Retro (Hardcover)
M ria Svarbov offers a breath of fresh air in the photography world. She has a distinctive style that departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, color, and atmosphere, which places itself neither in the past nor in the future. FUTURO RETRO is a transcendental and timeless series of images from the artist which evokes a traditional setting with sci-fi elements and follows from the immense success of her first photography book, Swimming Pool. M ria has a wonderfully individual style which moves away from the conventional. The socialist era and its architecture, public spaces and colour are hugely inspirational and this has been admired across the world in solo exhibitions and press on a global scale.
