christian mushenko is an acclaimed photographer based in sydney. a true veteran in his field of expertise, mushenko has been working for some of the planet's biggest brands, shooting everything from global campaigns to small pro-bono work, and personal projects. his work is marked by a simple, honest style that manages to get to the heart of the subject and capture its 'soul' and is very much alive and vibrant, with a sharp eye for beauty and humanity. the australian photographer will be showing his personal work at an upcoming exhibition at fox gallery, one of prague's leading contemporary art venues. the show is entitled longing - a light beyond darkness, and opens wed - dec 4 [6.30pm].

on display are a series of extraordinary and delicate portrayals of, very literally, the light beyond darkness. mushenko’s work examines the release into something beyond, capturing abstract colour field images that hint at a vision for the future, one that he romantically envisions is based on desires and longing for what we don’t have. longing is the quiet drama present in each photograph, created without a lens. the images are created by direct imaging onto the sensitive material [both film and digital sensors were used], and minimal post production was done to create them after capturing [on through jan 10]. location: ulica křemencova 176/6 [nové město].
