Russian-born photographer Tatiana Gulenkina pushes contemporary abstraction in the photographic medium with every one of her projects. The one primarily featured here consists of long-exposure shots of large bodies of colored ice, melting over a six hour period. As Gulenkina works with both traditional darkroom methods of photo capturing as well as more modern methods, she strives to find ways to communicate the intersections between the political and poetic, the collective and personal. Over time, the artist came to realize that her works of this style are more of a collaboration between herself and her subjects than her own pieces as she only sets the capturing of the process in motion, and what happens next is up to the object under the scrutiny of the camera.
