Olga Michi
Lady with a Fly

About

Edition of 7 Portrait of a girl. Mursi ethnic group, Ethiopia. This Mursi woman is wearing a hat that doubles as a sumptuously decorated piece of kitchenware - most objects here have multiple functions - but that also struck me as having something of early modern Europe about it. The resemblance of the fly that landed on her face as this photograph was taken to the mouches (literally 'flies') worn by European women in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries was purely a happy accident! Olga Michi is a modern digital artist, author of the concept of cinematographic projects. In her works, Olga follows the traditions of Western European art, in particular, the approaches that masters of the Düsseldorf school of photography employ. Olga's works cover and address a wide range of topics, including both acute problems of modern life and absorbing philosophical questions. What lies in the heart of Olga Michi's art projects is photographic images that undergo a multitude of artistic, conceptual, and technical processing stages to become finished pieces of art that together constitute thematic series. At every phase of image preparation, final printing, publication of signature albums, exhibitions, or cinematographic production, a team of specialists ensures the impeccable level of execution of Michi's works. One of Olga's projects, "Vulnerable", is devoted to the problem of preserving the culture of Northern, Asian, and African people, whose traditions grotesquely converge with the innovations brought by the modern European civilization. The project received international recognition with the publication of the namesake album, "Vulnerable", by German publisher teNeues, in English and German. The album gained positive reception in more than 10 leading European outlets, including Stern, Daily Mail, and others. _ Africa, Ethiopia, Portrait, Surma, Mursi, Vulnerable
