Filmmaker and photographer Nadia Lee Cohen is back with another intoxicating picture with latest effort ‘A Guide to Indulgence’.
A personal and satirical look through Lee’s lense, exploring the pre-determined principles in which a feminine beauty builds pressure around modern ideals.
“The constant pressure faced in striving for perfection is so familiar in the world we inhabit,’ Lee told Nowness. “Therefore, in response to homogenous ideals of beauty I wanted to create a satirical world in which the female inhabitants have pushed their appearances into cartoonish, melodramatic and extreme representations of femininity; yet are still looking to improve them selves even further.
“‘A Guide to Indulgence’ is an entirely personal series of images and film, which hopefully subtly exposes the cracks beneath the surface; depicted through music, darting eyes beneath masks and subtle word play, these features endeavor to puncture an environment that unless scrutinised appears entirely perfect.”
