Ekaterina Belinskaya Captures an Elegant Essence in Japan
Ekaterina Belinskaya's 'Big in Japan' photography series displays a number of chic Japanese fashion examples in an expressive setting, one that boldly contrasts with the lavishness of the outfits. The Los Angeles-based creative takes cues from Eastern cultures to bring to life an artistic vision that is part futurist, part avant-garde. The series seems to be largely explorative of the relationship between subject and space, as Ekaterina Belinskaya places the chic Japanese fashion ensembles in unlikely narratives — while one photoshoot takes place in the back of a restaurant's kitchen, another embraces a McDonald's fast food delivery cart as a prop. Moreover, the aesthetic quality that communicates futurist avant-gardism proves to be a focal point in Ekaterina Belinskaya's stylistic approaches.
