Olga Kaplan: My husband

Olga Kaplan: My husband
International Photography Grant 2020

Theme ‘My husband’ united in a series was made during a year. Olga acts as an absolutely contemporary photographer, but in her works she was able to maintain continuity and tradition of classical hotography. Searching for new motives and modes of expression, it is the main image and not the effect that so often enjoys photography. In short, even sophisticated audience will not be able to pass a strong energy flow, which is a frank and desperate liberation of art of Olga Kaplan.

Olga Kaplan was born in St. Petersburg in 1985. She took the camera when she was 24 years old and later began to teach in the photography school. Often treating their models quite ruthlessly, the author claims to get the best possible insight into the human essence. No frozen facial expressions, beneficial postures, smoothing angles. Complicating the images look the young master is onstantly moving from external to internal. As Paul Klee used to say: ‘Art does not portray the visible, but makes it visible’. Referring to a series of ‘Portrait of a Man’, we are struck by an amazing mix of photographic and painting techniques. And a radical new approach to taking a human face. Portrait cannot be reduced to the descriptive nor accurate fixation. Clarity of composition, he validity of parts and expressive emotional state of a model emphasize the effect of the photos.
