    About The Work

    Galina Kulat examines the connection between subject and medium, by embracing the imperfections and possibilities of process-based photography. Using traditional darkroom techniques, including wet collodion, expired Polaroid film, and lumen prints, she addresses identity, intimacy, and uncertainty. There is a latent spark in analog photographic processes which inspires her practice; experimentation is as essential as the outcome.

    Kurlat’s work is an ongoing investigation into the body as vulnerable and ever-changing. The subjects range from figurative portraiture to abstractions made with saliva, blood, hair, bathwater, and breastmilk. In every iteration, there is a consistent connection to the corporeal. Like flesh, these images change with time, recognizable features fade, and gestures disappear, obscuring identity. Between beauty and decay a truth is revealed—an ambiguous truth that asks more questions than it answers.
