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; Rita Lino explores the possibilities of her body with an uninhibited sexuality and a playful, stylised shamelessness.
Despite their raw unselfconsciousness, Rita 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.
