Coming-of-Age Collages by Ashkan Honarvar and Magdalena Franczuk

The Two Artists Illustrated the Innocence of Youth

Posted by Gestalten—03/2016

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.
