Tatiana Gulenkina

Tatiana Gulenkina is a photographer, visual artist and designer who employs digital technology and traditional darkroom equipment, video, and mixed media in her practice. “My interest in camera-less photography came from [a] desire to capture not a decisive moment but a time lapse, a movement or transformation of fragile organic objects caught on a light-sensitive surface. I started off working with recognizable shapes that after long darkroom manipulations often would turn out looking completely abstract yet more appealing to me; physically acting on paper surface, they became tangible imprints of ephemeral emotional states…These images challenge the expectations and capture the light itself; they bring viewers’ attention to the performative nature of creative process and elaborate on chance effects and intuitive states of being.”
