KRISTINA ŽETKO

Brainstorm

Kristina Zetko is an artist who works with photography as her main media. Her ongoing project Brainstorm is an experimental camera-less analog photography, where she uses two basic components of this medium - light and light-sensitive material. Zetko is creating handmade negatives by painting transparent sheets with different kinds of paints, mostly nail polishes. These are then placed in enlarger and used to expose the light-sensitive colour photographic paper. After developing the results are abstract colourful photographs.
