About the artist


Evgeniy Pavlov (1949, Kharkiv)—one of the foudners of the Kharkiv school of photography. In 1967-1972 studied at the department of Economy ar the O.M. Gorky Kharkiv State Univseristy (the V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University today). As a student, became a participant of the regional photo club at the Trade Unions’ Amateur Arts House, where met authors with whom in the early 1970s founded the Vremia photographic group (Oleg Maliovany, Boris Mikhailov, Oleksandr SitnichenkoOleksandr Suprun, Gennadiy Tublaev, later—Anatoliy Makiyenko). Created The Violin (1972)—one of the seminal series for the group. Worked as the head of the photolab at the Sitenko Kharkiv Research Institute of Orthopedics and Traumatology. After completing his military service, studied for cinema operator at the Kyiv State Theater Karpenko-Kary University (1974-1979).

Experimented with a wide range of techniques—from colour skides and overlays (Orwochrome series, 1974-1987) to collages and hand-colouring in the late 1980s – early 1990s (Archive series, 1988, Total photography, 1990-1994). Cooperation with a painter Volodymyr Shaposhnykov was an important episode in his creative career: it resulted in several series of handcoloured photography—Common Field (1996), Parnography (1998), Another Heaven (2007). Today the artist is the senior lecturer at the department of Television at the Kharkiv State Academy of Culture.
