Saty + Pratha combine a glossy aesthetic with a lightly surreal perspective, creating sophisticated but still quizzical images. Their polished technique and the gleaming representation of beauty and femininity of their pictures is suggestive of an attempt to question the stereotypes of fashion and the average idea of femininity, exploring indeed the currents and clichés of the Western visual culture.
The self-taught duo has already collected some remarkable achievements, as their fashion editorials have been published in magazines like i-D, Elle, Esquire and METAL. As if this wasn’t enough for the emerging couple, The Centre Pompidou has exhibited their film works, while the Magenta Foundation, PDN and American Photo among many others have rewarded them for their work. A solo show seemed the only thing that was missing in this noteworthy curriculum.
