AUTHENTIC ANALOG ART.
Words Arielle Chambers
Each picture displays a visible artistic narrative; the viewer can clearly see a story being told. On her flickr account, Kaletkina features a series of dark images that encourage emotion from her audience. Subjects in the shots express feelings of distress, sadness and rebellion amongst other emotions. There is heavy play on double exposure and interchangeability with black and white and vintage color. Settings of the images range from nature (lakes and fields) to domestics (rooms). Each image, however, encompasses strong sense appeal. Kaletkina pushes the boundaries of conventional photography and explores the art of it. She breaks away from the hegemony of technology today, and for that, she sets the standard.
