The Leica Gallery London will exhibit, for the first time ever, the Leica Oskar Barnack Award (LOBA) ‘Newcomer’ winner, Sergey Melnitchenko. Melnitchenko began taking photographs in 2009 and has won several awards as well as exhibiting across Europe since.
His work is born from a desire to go deep inside the subject using the interactions of those close to him to provide the stimulus and creative inspiration for his images. At times painfully personal, visceral and evocative, he takes us on an intimate life journey through both an abstract and realist lens.
The exhibition will show works from three of his series ‘Who’s Here?’ documenting his family life with his wife and stepson, ‘Her’ focusing on his wife and muse and his own ‘Nude Self-portraits’, all of which are shot on the Leica he won as part of the LOBA in 2017.
The address: Leica Gallery London, 64-66 Duke Street, Mayfair, W1K 6JD London (Bond Street Station)
Monday - Saturday: 10am-7pm
