Many contemporary photographers would duplicate images digitally through computer manipulation, which would result in precisely the same image repeated over and over. Instead, each of Misha's photographs is unique, exactly like a drawing or painting. What at first looks like merely repetitious imagery actually contains minuscule variations among similar images which Misha has repositioned. His work is aesthetically challenging because of this extraordinary subtlety and the time and attention required to appreciate it fully. In this sense, Misha's photographs are much like classical music, formally predicated on statement, variation, and repetition. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
