Her photography is unique. Her artistic talent is not limited to photography. She is also paints and draws and is a printmaker. She’s an all-around good artist.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Orlofsky said she did a lot of dancing growing up and, to her, dance is a beautiful form of art.So, in the process of creating her concentration, she started by taking photographs of friends who modeled as dancers. She took the dancers on location to the Shakespeare Festival grounds in Montgomery, to sites around Troy and to a Brundidge cemetery.“After I took the photographs, I drew designs, carved them and made print makings. Finally, using graphic design, I combined my photographs and printmaking to transform the dancers into birds, a phoenix, a raven and a swan.”Orlofsky adjusts the color in some of her photographs to create unusual images from ordinary object.“I like to see what happens when I increase the brightness or saturation of colors,” she said. “Sometimes, I get amazing images.”Dukes said most everything about Orlofsky’s photography is amazing.“The concentration for her portfolio for the Troy Arts Council Scholarship was photography and our panel of impartial judges were so impressed they recommended the awarding of the scholarship to this talented young artist,” Duke said.Duke said the TAC wishes Orlofsky all the best in whatever career path she chooses and hopes that art will always have a place in her life.The TAC scholarship is in the amount of $2,000 to be awarded in the amount of $500 in each of four semesters. The recipients of the scholarships must take at least one art class during each semester of the scholarship awards.
