Abstract. For the first time the article carries out the complex study of the main strategies for interpreting the mask theme in surrealist photography in the national art history. The work reveals such approaches to the interpretation of the mask theme in surrealist photography as its representation as an artifact / found object, fetish / element of sexual game, interpretation as a form of identity. The research shows that when referring to the mask motive surrealist photography updates such topics as ethnography, colonialism, eroticism, desire, violence, death, gender identity, and self-knowledge.
