Art, war, carnival or cult - masks have two sides: They conceal and hide, and at the same time create new personalities, strange and captivating at once. So, too, do masks reveal world views of time and place: cult masks from Africa, medieval knight helmets, fantasy masks of famous film heroes like Darth Vader, or gas masks and VR glasses as modern functional objects. In this new photo book, Russian photographer Olga Michi traces our millennia-old fascination with masks. Her expressive pictures place the masks center-stage, creating a new, surrealistic aesthetic. With fascinating texts on each mask's cultural-historical significance, this high-quality photo book delights, informs, and ignites the imagination.
