Works and experimental works in progress relating to the Bauhaus, Dessau & Berlin, and the Isokon, London.

For more on this project see posts on my blog:  http://blog.milenamichalski.com

‘Bauhaus, Dessau’

These medium format negatives  are presented here as objects in their own right. The material of film is a sculptural object, as well as a basis for printing photographs. The resulting photographs will be posted here at a later date.

Isokon tree photograms

This photogram is created using leaves from an ash tree still growing by the Isokon, linking the past with the present, and highlighting the vital role of light in both photosynthesis and photography.
