Coming-of-Age Collages by Ashkan Honarvar and Magdalena Franczuk
The Two Artists Illustrated the Innocence of Youth
For their series Zła uczennica—“The Bad Schoolgirl” in Polish—photographer Magdalena Franczuk and collage artist Ashkan Honarvar teamed up to tell a tender coming-of-age story of a young girl distracted while working on her homework. Franczuk’s dimly-lit photographs are adorned with Honarvar’s hand-cut diagrams and anatomical figures. There is a timeless, relateable quality to the series in which the innocence of youth is front and center.
