Adelaide Ivánova

Adelaide Ivánova was born in Recife, Brazil. Her work concentrates on the human body in its daily concreteness, both in its natural naked exposures to the world and in the role playing games of dressing for the creation of an identity. To this effect, she works with portraits of friends and lovers in moments of utter intimacy, recalling the work of a forerunner like Nan Goldin, and at the same time producing fashion photography with a candidness and delicacy unusual for such pictures. The beauty of her work remains in the mixing of such references, bringing movement and intimacy to the what usually falls into posing, which brings her closer to an artist like Walter Pfeiffer or photographers of her own age such as Brett Lloyd. Adelaide Ivánova has published photographs in a variety of magazines such as i-D or Colors and is currently showing in Madrid, Spain. Adelaide Ivánova lives and works in Sao Paulo.
