Photography exhibit eyes
contrasts in light, shadow


“Renaissance MMVIII,” a photographic exhibit featuring the work of Igor Kraguljac, a student in the M.S. Visualization Science program at Texas A&M, opens Oct. 3 in the Wright Gallery, located on the second floor of Building A in the Langford Architecture Center on the Texas A&M campus.

In the exhibit, Kraguljac uses digital photography to explore “chiaroscuro,” an artistic technique developed during the Renaissance, referring to the use of exaggerated light contrasts in order to create the illusion of volume in modeling 3-D objects such as the human body.

“Particular light, good angles, and the right moment are the three most important elements for creating an interesting photograph,” said Kraguljac. “The artwork I am sharing includes images from my thesis research, in which I translate chiaroscuro into the digital photographic medium.”

Carol LaFayette, associate professor of visualization, is Kraguljac’s thesis adviser. His photographs have previously been shown in galleries in the United States and Europe.

Biographical information and selections from the artist’s portfolio can be viewed on his website.
