2017 Spotlight Artist Vlad Korol
Vlad Korol’s passion for photography and image development began in 1979, when his father presented him with a Smena–8 camera. His focus in recent decades has been to capture the natural world in bloom. Through his first multi-part collection, “Flora Criogenica,” Korol exposes hues and tones never before produced as a result of unique development techniques. He continues to refine his process of cryogenically freezing subjects in order to expose and control pure color and form, while allowing this personally constructed palette to evolve through new visual applications and concepts.
