Hanbury Road Gallery's first exhibition of 2016 is shadows, a solo show by Ukrainian-born photographer Yulia Kazban, opening noon on Wednesday 13th of January. Rather than an evening preview, it's an opening day, so nibbles and tea will be waiting for visitors from noon to 6pm.
Working with analogue film photography, Yulia captures and prints her own images using a variety of traditional techniques which give many of her images a feel of old illustrations. She works with a variety of subjects, from portrait through landscape, cityscape and still life to abstract.
As a visual artist, she is reluctant to describe the process of her work or what meaning or context they may have to her, preferring to let the images speak to the viewer themselves.
You can view a selection of Yulia’s photography on Flickr.
