TORBJøRN RøDLAND /// THE MODEL         de | en

Malgosia Bela, actress and model from Poland, is THE MODEL. Her face is on the covers of international magazines, as a fashion model she is present on huge blow-ups, and big brands like Chanel or ZADIG & VOLTAIRE book her for photo shootings, advertisements and posters.

The book combines the stylized media images with photographs that Torbjørn Rødland has also taken off the set over a period of 10 years in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London, Warsaw, Oslo and Lofoten, creating a multi-layered picture puzzle that explores and blurs the boundaries between the media figure and the woman behind the pictures.

Malgosia in the studio, Malgosia in the hotel, Malgosia with guitar, Malgosia with pictures of Malgosia, Malgosia on the beach. Documentary snapshots from the life of a sought-after model? Maybe. Or unvarnished but calculated stagings? Maybe.

And because this question remains unanswered, THE MODEL has become a very exciting book. A book about the nature of photography and about a very interesting personality.
