In my hometown color photography was not available to amateur photographers until the mid 90’s of the last century. The reason was simple – the city did not have a laboratory developing and printing color photographic stuff. I had enough experience in the processing of black-and-white stuff in my home laboratory, and most importantly, my photographic vision was monochrome. That's why, when the Kodak lab came to my town, I was confused. I asked for myself a strange question – what and how to shoot in color? My photographic mind was brought up by monochrome and was not ready for color. However, I started to experiment. So in 1997 was born the series of pictures I named “Florescence” in honor of my first experience in color photography.
