Tatiana Gulenkina was born in Russia.  She obtained a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art (USA) in 2010.  She works with digital technology and darkroom techniques.  Her body of work “Things Merging and Falling Apart” is a series of type C contact prints made in the darkroom without using a camera.  I find inspiration in those images for their emotional expression.  In “Vanishment,” we see absence through personal objects; which relates to my on-going project.
