Yaroslav Ogorodnyk is one of the
new star photographers rising from behind the iron curtain in the Ukraine.
Well known in his own country, Ogorodnyk has found growing interest in the
US and Europe for his lyrical and aesthetically beautiful photographs.
Critics comment, "when you see Ogorodnyk's work, your eyes do not
leave his subjects easily. His portraits visually grab you. His subjects
communicate human vulnerability, mystery and strength, all at the same
time. His exceptional use of lighting in his nude series of photographs is
comparable to the best. And the world is discovering that these Ukrainian
artists are one of the most economical and best investments in today's art
Ogorodnyk's work covers a wide range of subject and he does accept
commission work, though on a very selective basis. More of his work can be
seen at his website.
