Contemporary Culture Department
Photographer, historian, instructor. Since 2015 he has been running the Photography Studio of Workshops of Culture located in one of the most beautiful corners of Lublin’s city centre and named after the Hartwig family. While working in Poland, Roman has created his own alternative photographic technique as a result of three years (2015-2018) of experiments with the four historic photographic techniques–wet plate collodion, ambrotype, verre eglomise and orotone. Roman has given this mixed photography technique created in Lublin the name of lublintone. In May 2016, works in this technique were exhibited for the first time at the analogue photography festival in Barcelona (Spain). Roman Krawczenko is happy to share his knowledge and skills with young Polish photographers. That’s why it is no exaggeration to say that his efforts contribute to the emergence of a new photography technique in Poland. As a resident of Crimea, Mr Kravchenko was an informal ambassador of Polish culture. He organised an exhibition dedicated to Adam Mickiewicz and the Crimean Sonnets in Bakhchysarai and ran many plain air workshops for Polish photographers. Roman Krawczenko’s photographs were published in The Wet Plate Collodion Day Book (2009). The book features the works of 51 photographers from 13 countries on 3 continents.
