These photographs, made with the ambrotype - resulting in the one-of-kind images captured on glass - repesent a new stage in photography, the so-called "antiquarian avant-garde", that is, the radical rediscovery of obsolute photographic techniques. Sergey Romanov goes further than any other contemporary photographer in pushing his medium into imagistic territory never approached before, because he has ignored all the rules: he just doesn't care about good taste, or perfect craftsmanship, or total control, or conctpual straregies. He is deeply convinced that what is most inportant (and most often missing in today's photography) is an ineffable spirit - and he will risk everything to evoke it. When he succeeds, his images posses the uncanny physical presence of living body, the primal mafnetism of sexuality, and the hypnotic involment of the hallucinations. A waking dream
