Anton Trofymov


I just came across this photographer's work via the Brooklyn Arts Council, where he is having a show. His night photos in particular are technically excellent, and have a haunting quality, yet are not overtly threatening. He appears to be shooting with a 4x5 camera, and makes a clearly determined effort to make his shots with care.

On a personal note, some of his images are of places which I have also attempted to photograph, but with far less success. He is also achieving something which I often strive for in my work - this brooding quality of purely architectural space.

Great work.
