Anna Dobrovolskaya-Mints and Aesthetica Prize

Dear Friends, We are thrilled to announce that Anna Dobrovolskaya-Mints has been featured in the prestigious Aesthetica Prize. Her Somewhere to Swim series, captured during the Covid-19 lockdowns, showcases Anna’s unique perspective and keen eye for minimalist compositions. Through her lens, Anna invites us to ponder the eerie stillness of public spaces left deserted during the pandemic. The desolate swimming pools featured in her works evoke a sense of solemnity and emptiness, urging us to contemplate the impact of the global pandemic on our emotional and psychological well-being. Anna’s masterful use of monochromatic tones adds to the haunting quality of her images, inviting us to take a second look and explore the uncanny beauty of the ordinary. Sigmund Freud once described the uncanny as something that arouses dread and creeping horror, but Anna’s Somewhere to Swim series shows us that there is also a strange and poignant beauty in the unremarkable. Her work reminds us of the power of art to capture the spirit of our times and to move us to reflect on our shared humanity.   Sincerely, ADM PHOTO
