Petra Collins sees the vulnerability in every subject.
Her camera lives exactly where it isn’t supposed to, as though each image were a repressed memory, or some dreamcore fantasy gone awry.
What’s most amazing though is not the imagery itself, but the intoxicating effect it creates: instead of being repelled by the camera’s dissecting gaze, we are only pulled deeper into her beautiful dystopia.
Petra is a Canadian artist, director of photography, model and actress.
Her work has been exhibited at institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, The Tate Modern and Miami & Hong Kong Art Basel.
