Instructor: Roman Krawczenko (b.1957)
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 developed his own alternative photographic technique, which is the result of three years (2015-2018) of experimenting with four historical photographic techniques – wet plate collodion, ambrotype, verre eglomise and orotone. Roman has given the name Lublintone to this mixed photographic technique, created in Lublin. In May 2016, works in this technique were exhibited for the first time at the Festival of Analogue Photography in Barcelona (Spain). Roman Krawczenko is happy to share his knowledge and skills with young Polish photographers. Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that his efforts contribute to the emergence of a new school of photography in Poland. As a resident of Crimea, Mr. Krawczenko was an informal ambassador of Polish culture. He organised an exhibition on Adam Mickiewicz and the Crimean Sonnets in Bakhchysarai and held many outdoor 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.
