Romain Mader’s work explores themes of gender-representation, loneliness and romance by creating fictional narratives within his images. In Ekaterina Romain travels an the imaginary city and documents his search for a girlfriend, clumsily posing with mail-order brides and passing through a series of fictional towns meeting numerous Ekaterinas until he finally finds his bride.

Explaining his reasoning for making himself the protagonist Romain Mader’s says: “It’s too easy to mock people. It’s better to pose myself and be the main character in my work. This way, there’s irony and vulnerability.”
