While Katharina Lepik is still a student, this young colorist with a subtle palette has already defined the functions she wants to give to photography. Framing portions of the real world she rebuilds it with her fantasy and at the same time, she confuses us establishing visual correspondances. For Gelsomina she has traveled in Europe, Munich, Berlin, London, Blackpool, Bussang, places with strange atmospheres, near circuses, but also funparks, theaters, zoos. Sisterness builds a collection of selfportraits with people looking like her but who have no other kind of relationship with her. What do appearances mean? What’s reality? Photography asks about it. But, of course, cannot solve it.
