Regular readers will notice the new face of That Friday Feeling mostly inspired by this photo from Philip Pankov Photography. Philip specialises in beautiful Black & White photos from Ireland. He is originally from Russia but has now made Ireland his home where he lives in Greystones. He has studied extensively and has studied photography at the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art & Design as well as earning degrees from both Trinity and UCD.
"After he started widely exhibiting in late 90s, Pankov’s work rapidly garnered substantial recognition with the Irish population who were enchanted with his shamrock-free depiction of their country. More recently, Pankov’s work has gained increasing popularity worldwide and is now held in private and corporate collections throughout Europe, North America, and Japan. (See www.philpankov.com for more information).
All of his photographs are hand-printed by the artist himself and processed to museum archival standards. Working exclusively with traditional medium-format black-and-white film allows Philip to produce ultra high-resolution images that capture minute details with striking sharpness."
