Roman Loranc: Poetry of the Lens
Roman Loranc is a self-taught photographer who began his journey as an artist in the early 1960s when he received a 35mm camera for his first communion. Over time he learned to print and develop on his own and continues to do so, now using a 4×5 view camera. Roman shapes the photo from start to finish. The innate drama of the landscapes is reproduced through a variable split-toning (sepia and selenium) technique. His work is included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House Rochester, New York; National Art Museum of China; and Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
