Evgeniy Pavlov (b. 1949) is a Ukrainian photography artist from Kharkiv. He is one of the founders of the Kharkiv School of Photography. As a student, he was a participant of the regional photo club at the Trade Unions’ Amateur Arts House, where met authors with whom in the early 1970s founded the Vremia photographic group (Oleg Maliovany, Boris Mikhailov, Oleksandr Sitnichenko, Oleksandr Suprun, Gennadiy Tublaev, later—Anatoliy Makiyenko). In 1972 Pavlov created The Violin — one of the seminal series for the group.
Pavlov experimented with a wide range of techniques — from colour slides and overlays (Orwochrome series, 1974-1987) to collages and hand-colouring in the late 1980s – early 1990s (Archival series, 1988, Total Photography, 1990-1994). Pavlov’s collaboration with painter Volodymyr Shaposhnykov was an important episode in his creative career: it resulted in several series of hand-coloured photography — Common Field (1996), Parnography (1998), Another Heaven (2007). Today the artist is the senior lecturer at the department of Television at the Kharkiv State Academy of Culture.
