“This work is about female faces—portraits of all the woman I find on my travels. I’m fascinated by the landscapes and topographies from women’s faces, their stories and context. I’m interested in the way life and time is writing on all of them—not just with physical marks but also with more spiritual traces,” photographer Lusia Dorr said when asked about her project, “Topography of Women.” Luisa finds inventive ways to express her photography by using it as a main tool of communication. In this case, communicating the diverse beauty of women living all over the world. Encountering interesting women along the way, she captures them with a portraiture style that showcases a direct glimpse to each of her subject’s persona: against the backdrop of everyday setting seen in their country of origin.
“The main aim of the project is to give continuity to the personal photo essay that I have been undergoing for the past years, taking portraits of women all over the world. Celebrating the diversity of women faces, women fiscal landscapes, the photogenic individuality that makes them all one an at the same time makes them unique. I’m fascinated by the landscapes and topographies from women’s faces, their stories and context. I’m interested in the way life and time is writing on all of them—not just with physical marks but also with more spiritual traces.” Luisa tells Resource Magazine.
Since starting her photography series in her home country of Brazil, Luisa has traveled to other countries such as Armenia, United Kingdom, Norway and Spain and plans to pursue her quest to shoot portraits of women in Asia where she is penciling the nations of the Philippines, Vietnam and Japan as her next destinations. “There is no limit for this project, it’s about my life, and about the people I’ll know, works and trips. I was living in Europe for the past 6 months, now, I’m back in Brazil and I’ll be here until the start of 2016. I’m a freelancer photographer I have some projects to finish in Sao Paulo and I’m trying to get a grant to do a project in Amazonia and another project in Sergipe – Brazil.”
While she juggles between other photography projects, Lusia promised to continue documenting the various topographies of women’s beauty all over the world.
