DOSTOYEVSKY'S HEROINES

“Dostoevsky’s Heroines” is a reinterpretation of five prominent females from three of the world’s most famous literary masterpieces; “Crime and Punishment”, “The Idiot”, and “The Brothers Karamazov”, by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

While borrowing the aesthetics of today’s cover girls, and utilizing contemporary Russian supermodels and fashion design, these portraits also appear as ideals of intellect and integrity, referring to their historical position as women with no rights, in a society where shame and honor defined their destinies.
