Publisher presentation :

"Entartete (German for Degenerate) is the result of more than 10 years of auto-portraiture by the emerging Portuguese photographer, Rita Lino. A large series of experimental photographs of psychological or emotional moments taken primarily for the purpose of introspection and self-analysis presented in a limited edition quarter-bound hardback .

Nudity and nakedness as confessional, as an admission of vulnerability, not for the sake of titillation; Lino explores the possibilities of her body with an uninhibited sexuality and a playful, stylised shamelessness.

Despite their raw unselfconsciousness, Lino’s images are more than mere snapshots; touching simultaneously on voyeurism, loneliness, the manipulative power of the camera, and the urge to connect with others, through, within, and apart from technology and media. Repeatedly concealing their message, necessarily strange and ambiguous, Lino´s images construct a self that is mutable and elusive. Whether concealed or conspicuous, ultimately Lino asserts that no degree of exposure fully reveals her."

Lino describes her photography as « animal, instinctive, intimate, narcissistic, filled with emotions and sensations, a diary with a thousand possible interpretations, a spiritual place, a self-sustained rehab outlined by the brutal transparency of [her] own life. » Rita Lino has published four photobooks: "All the Lovers" (Sauna, 2012), "Entartete" (Editions du LIC, 2015), "Kingdom" (Stolen Books / Inferno Books, 2018) and "Replica" (APE - Art Paper Editions, 2021). © Self-portrait from the "Replica" series
  • Presentation by Art Paper Editions: " Replica suggests a new reading of the body and the model as a pure image,  a pure tool, without referring to any representative identity, hereby ignoring today’s contemporary society of what the self should be. Lino refers strongly to American mid-century photographer William Mortensen, who states that a body is...
