Olga Solomita: artist, writer, and educator.
Living in Cambridge, Massachusetts for most of her adult life, Solomita currently resides in Somerville, Massachusetts, the next lovely town over. Participating in the original, and subsequent, Cambridgeport Open Studios, she now participates in Somerville Open Studios.
Her photography has been exhibited nationwide; and she is an active proponent and curator of local poetry and spoken-word events, including “Just Beyond the Solstice” at the Washington Street Art Center, and 'Spring Masala Mondays' at The Precinct Bar, both in Somerville.
Much of her work is traditional black and white photography from film, ranging from fine art documentary to large-scale, multiple image works. Her light sources explored in the large-scale work include candlelight, and overexposure in bright sunlight. These images have a near abstract, and at times grainy, effect.
Solomita has recently begun creating images utilizing digital photography.
