The creation work of Robertas Misiukonis has many links with directing photography, he also creates by using a method of analogical photography. In the series of photography’’ “FOR HER OR THE LIFE MAELSTROMS’’ Robertas Misiukonis presents photographs that have been created by using a technique of cyanotype. This is especially uncommon technique of photography when photos, that are printed by using hands, get blue shade.
In every photograph artist portrays still another fragment, a portrait of woman or man is often pictured, and in some photographs images, that are comprised from different details, are a bit abstract. Details of human body are very significant in the photographs: expressive facial lines, graceful body shape. This series of photographs of Robertas Misiukonis is like a diary of two people which consists of everyday fragments.
