August 29, 2019 at 16.00 hours in VOKHM them. I.N. Kramskoy, in the framework of the VI festival of art photography FotumArt, the grand opening of the exhibition of works by the famous Voronezh photographer Vladimir Golub will take place.
The exhibition “Metamorphoses of the Visible” presents about 40 photographs executed in the direction of Fine-Art Photography. The main objective of this direction is the creation of aesthetically significant photographic images, the transmission of a certain emotional mood to the viewer, reflecting the subjective perception of the author, which fundamentally distinguishes “Fine-Art Photography” from “ordinary” photography, which documents specific objects and events.
The project was implemented using computer processing methods in combination with advanced EPSON photo printing technologies, which makes it possible, by varying the formal presentation of photography, to make it more expressive, close to painting and graphic work. This technique allows us to move from a conventional realistic photograph to a more generalized, often almost abstract image of real objects, to an image whose perception is based on the harmony of color spots, lines, texture of graphic elements.
The author is sincerely grateful to Epson Europe B.V. and personally to the head of the Russian mission, Evgeny Dzhaksimov.
