Step up: the artist fixated on feet – in pictures

Russian photographer Lisa Litovka can’t decide why her sculptures are foot-focused. “Is it because I like feet or don’t like them? Shoes are great, though, and crazy shoes are cool.” This belief is clear from her images of footwear made from pancakes, mushrooms, slinky’s, broken glass … “Spiky, uncomfortable shoes happen,” she says. “I’m so immersed in the process that it doesn’t bother me much.”

You may be relieved to hear that, although she has a collection of “magical” secondhand shoes, Litovka mainly wears trainers. “In my normal life it’s about the eyes and being an artist, not my feet.”
