The member of the St. Petersburg Union of Artists (IFA).
Tatiana was born and still lives in St. Petersburg, was graduated from St.Petersburg State University.
She began to do photography like everyone else – in childhood. At some point
she realized that she had exhausted the capabilities of the point-and-shoot, and thought
about buying new equipment, and at the same time the necessity of training; thus there
occurred a transition to a new level of herself. Tatiana studied at the PhotoFaculty and
the Academy "Photographica", finished the author's courses of photography by Arthur
Jonauskas, Dmitry Konradt, Margarita Fedina.
She took up photography seriously in 2013; since 2016 she has taken part in art
exhibitions. Starting with digital photography, Tatiana moved to the development and
use of techniques of manual image printing, which permits you to create a complete
work of authorship, personally embodying it in the imprint, considering the process of
"birth" of the picture in the hands not less interesting than the moment of awareness of
the frame, successfully formed in the viewfinder.
Tatiana combines in her work the romantic ideal of the city with the classical
tradition of manual printing. Manual printing according to old recipes, with its laconism
and minimalism, allows the author to go beyond strictly documentary fixation of the
surrounding reality. Every imprint is unique and inimitable.
"Race with the sun" series
The theme of the city is the main one in Tatiana's works. The presented series
shows the pictures taken in a small provincial town. Although we can find out the name
of the town, it is rather a collective image. Tatiana draws inspiration from the world
around her. Emotions, feelings, thoughts, mood – everything plays a role.
A kind of subdued colouring, bright glare and intense light and shade add the
rapid internal dynamics to the author's compositions. Photos made in the technique of
the so-called by the author "chocolate printing", are literally filled with coffee and
cinnamon aroma of the warm sunny morning, the colour contrast of freshly brewed
coffee and soft, delicate milk foam, and hit you with the exquisite decorative forms,
immersing the viewer into the creative element of life.
In Tatyana's works the ability to catch elusive moments of life fixing them in
characteristic details is valuable. The ability to show the whole through the image of the
part, to express the essence of the idea.
