"Examining a character within its context is my obsession. Through my portrait practice, I’ve developed an analytical method that allows me to offer a particular view on the nature of our times. I explore the power of the image and its effects on culture. Media, advertising, the Internet, and portrait tradition, are the endless sources for my work." - Ariamna Contino
