By The Way


Singers Marta Torrella (contralto) and Helena Ros (soprano) started Tarta Relena in 2016 to explore the different styles of vocal music. The Barcelona duo aims to perform a repertoire that ranges from music of oral tradition to songs that in one way or another are related to the Mediterranean.

The book Future Perfect is an impressive collection of portraits of prepubescent models photographed by Zosia Prominska. Carefully staged within the intimate spaces of their bedrooms and surrounded by small details reflecting their teenage or even childish reality, they are styled in the latest collections of Poland’s best designers to resemble the models they themselves dream to become. Early contracts with professional model agencies for when they turn 16, create hope and drive expectations. But not all will develop into the standards of today’s fashion world. What impact does this create to these individuals?

Prominska (b. 1985) approaches the subject matter for very personal reasons. The artist herself is a former model and knows only too well of the exploration in the fashion industry and how the pressures of fitting into specific criteria can influence the life of a teenager.
