"The photo book 'Snow and Rose & other Tales', the first monograph of Marianna ROTHEN, with works from the last years.
'In the lonely fortress of her home, life is unbearable,' with these dramatic words the viewer is invited into the world created by Marianna ROTHEN; in this world women have left the company of men to live among themselves in a remote and peaceful place.
The photographs in the photobook 'Snow and Rose & other Tales' by Marianna ROTHEN are staged like homages to the films of Antonioni, Bergman or Godard; they remind us of film stills and invite us to look for allusions.
'Snow and Rose & other Tales' is laid out like a film: slowly a story unfolds that tells of despair in a domestic setting, of freedom and independence. ROTHEN's photographs are at once disturbing and sexy, humorous and serene, but above all they are extraordinarily beautiful portraits of women, portraits with a great sense of styling and scene setting."
