are,Michael-M von Karkawski,Palinchak Mikhail and Dubi
Roman. Stark black and whites,creative images to
colorful landscapes these fine art photographers have
painted a spectualr exhibition on PixiPort.
"As a nature photographer I strive to present nature in a
natural form, to conserve the uncertainty, the misty
and emotion." The technique I use is based on changing
planes of focus,
soft focusing and scattered light, that gives a romantic
and impressionistic effect, colored in the colors of
dreams". Dubi Roman
Ukrainian photographer Palinchak Mikhail has over the
past 15 years displayed his work in more than 300
exhibitions in the USA, England, Argentina, Austria,
Belgium, Hong Kong, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg,

Royal Photographic Society. He is the winner of
countless prizes and awards. Palinchak M Mikhail
For four years he was a student of Art Academy in
drawing. First steps in photography are only nature ,
landscapes. In future years Michael was working in an
advertisement agency.He has published multimedial CDR
titled Italy and is working on photoillustrations for other
books."A portion of the activities in my work, I paint in
oil on canvas, I then make the image through digital
manipulation and I also draw. I have many of my ideas
expressed in my photography through my art while
trying to capture their images through the camera lens."

Digital -Photofusion exhibitor is Janet
a fractual artist. Beautiful inspirational art.
Janet Parke lives and works in Memphis, Tennessee, as
a ballet teacher and choreographer. She began
exploring fractals in 1997 and had her first solo
exhibition two years later. Since then, her work has
appeared in several exhibitions worldwide, including "The
Frontier Between Art and Science" which toured Europe
and South America. Her "Libellen" won an Award of
Excellence in the 2001 Toray Digital Creation Awards.
"The medium in which I work is Fractal Art. My studio is
my computer screen, and I use specialized mathematical
formulas as my paints and brushes. Each element of my
image - shape, color, texture, light, and shadow - is
controlled by these formulas and I, in turn, control the
formulas by manipulating their parameters and numeric
values. I form each image from a collage of fractal
layers which merge and interact to create the finished
work. Once completed, the image is rendered at the
appropriate size and printed in continuous tone on
As an artist with a background in music and dance, I am
inspired by their common elements - the rhythmic
repetition of the fractal shape, the graceful, sweeping
curves and spirals of color, the dramatic use of texture
and light. Creating and combining these elements is
comparable to composing a symphony - the basic
fractal structure is the melody, the shapes and colors
are the voices of different instruments, and the texture
like the various sounds of the percussion section.
Together they become a rich and complex dance of
color. I enjoy the challenge of painting with numbers,
but despite its mathematical base, fractal art, for me, is
a very intimate and passionate means of expressing the
creative spirit." Janet Parke
