 New works:


The art itself is an intimate exploration of the internal spiritual space- emotions, passions, desires and experiences coming together, creating an organic self- expressive picture.

The technical process is quaint – I recombine various negatives on a very thin photo paper (out of production for more of 30 years now "ORWO", "FORTE"- former socialist brands) which gets crumpled and lightened in the process of printing and manipulated with various mixtures of chemicals, the result of which are the tawny- brownish, ocher and tan hues on purely black and white paper without the use of any toners.Thus every piece that emerges is unique, no editions possible.

The Pain and Joy of Creation Embrace in Love.




"Stanka Tsonkova /Usha/, one of the few women photographers working as an artist, turns inward to contemplate her own life as woman, mother and photographer-and the difficulty of maintaining that equilibrium."
