Three Sisters 'An Ode To Friendship' by Sofia Baytocheva 11 (2021) by Sofia BaytochevaGlobal Design Graduate Show
Three Sisters - Fictional family album
Created by Sofia Baytocheva, 'Three Sisters' won the Photography Category in the Global Design Graduate Show in collaboration with Gucci 2021.
This work is a photographic series of intimate portraits. The photographs create a fictional family album, where the photographer and two other young women dream about the idea of sisterhood, a fantasy world.
This work feels like a natural continuation of the last two series made before this one, connecting through the idea of gaze and self representation through others.
The project is an ode to friendship, an exploration of boundaries between friend and family.
"Blood is thicker than water" is a medieval proverb meaning that familial bonds will always be stronger than bonds of friendship or love.
This phrase is commonly misused since the real quote, actually states the opposite: ''The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.''
