Katrina Schneider's 'Tale of Two Sisters' Features Veiled Models

— March 19, 2012 — Fashion
The German-born artist Katrina Schneider has delved into the themes of evanescence and vacuity in her latest photo shoot entitled, ‘Tale of Two Sisters.’

The pictures capture two free spirited young women adorned in feathered masks and flowing dresses. Their relaxed if not apathetic demeanor reveals a sense of restless youthfulness, a depiction that resonates well with Schneider’s 20-year-old self.

The austere Tale of Two Sisters portraits are offset by a taxidermy squirrel and a vintage clock, two highly unexpected props which have effectively infused some frill into the series. And yet, despite the dash of frill, the overarching theme of mystery is apparent by way of the masked models. As the ornate guises reveal little if any emotion, much has remained unknown. It is up to the viewer to discern the Tale of Two Sisters’ tone.
