Kati Turkina aka turkina faso’s main art and research work is about relations between nature, humanity and reality and its perception.
In her latest series for Odiseo’s cover story, of which is “Evoking thoughts of conformity and lack of change, but also the sensation of equality and unity, explores the significance of patterns, and the need for belonging,”
A visual essay by Russian photographer turkina faso developed a concept focussed on skin: “I realised that uniformity, for me, is connected to skin, race, self-representation and identifying yourself in the crowd.”
Throughout the series, titled Skin Scale, Kati places her models in situations where they are comfortable in their skin, presenting it as an individual uniform. “The aim was to show skin differently, not just its colour or texture, but showing the mood of the person,” she explains. “I didn’t strive to show all existing skin types, but I did think it was interesting to get different people into one narrative, match them and try to create an example of what we see every day on the street — people of all kind, just different and beautiful.”
