UK-based Swedish artist Eva Stenram loves vintage pin-up photos which are the protagonists of a world made of illusions. The artist creates interesting collages thanks to alluring and discomfiting manipulations where body parts – wearing shoes and hose – lay amid midcentury furniture and mysterious drapery.

By altering negatives, Eva Stenram pulls the viewer into her world of mesmerizing illusion. “Photography is always this oscillation between presence and absence,” she says. “I am interested in the viewer somehow completing the work imaginatively”.
