Sebastian Rut is a photographer born in Cracow, Poland, currently residing in Chicago, Illinois. Living in Unites States and being surrounded by a multitude of cultures and mythologies, Sebastian decided to reject all influences of western European art he grew up and been familiar with. With a clean slate he started to create his own worlds and symbolism looking for inspirations in science, scientific research and other non art related sources. His visual style reuse elements taken from graphs, tables, diagrams and various scientific documentation. Sebastian’s preferred medium is medium format film. Larger negative size allows him to alter the captured images by working directly on emulsion. Recently he started to explore possibilities of merging of traditional analogue photography with digital techniques.
Currently Sebastian is working on creating sculptural objects that will allow viewers to immerse themselves in his visions and let them interact actively with his imagery.
