Tim Lytvinenko is a photographer and printmaker from Raleigh, NC. Tim spent a good chunk of his childhood angling to spend more time in dark rooms. He took his first photography class in third grade and was fascinated by all of it, but found his sweet spot under the red lights of the darkroom. Through timing and tweaking different elements — exposure, developer, stop bath, fixer — he began learning how to control and change the way his prints turned out.
Tim explains his work by saying, “As I was making regular photo print, I accidentally put the photo paper in the printer backwards, resulting in a drippy mess of an image. I still have that first print, just a blob of color now but I love it. This opened up a world of manipulating prints that got me on the path of the processes I use today.”
