The Popovy Sisters, twins Ekaterina and Elena Popovy, are born and raised in Perm, Russia. Over the past decade, they have been perfecting hyper-realistic dolls paying close attention to each realistic human gesture, facial expression, and the infinite details when it comes to hair, make-up, and dress. The Popovy Sisters have a year-long waiting list to produce an actual doll for those invited to purchase, and now their followers are able to purchase fine-art photography of these dolls. The prints are produced by the highest quality materials and in small editions, are highly coveted and sought after as they convey the overt style and femininity of each doll.
The Sisters have developed a cult following, accumulating close to half a million followers on Instagram. They have been featured in Vogue Russia, Flaunt Magazine, Oneg Magazine, and Huffington Post. The Popovy Sisters are exclusively represented by JM Management located in Los Angeles.
These particular diptychs of photographs capture the doll commissioned by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Jeannette I + II, along with two other projects by the Popovy Sisters. Coinciding with NY Fashion Week, these photographs pay homage to haute couture and fashion photography, mimicking the dramaticism of Richard Avedon and Helmut Newton’s portrait photography.
