In 1979, there was a fire in the laboratory, which has destroyed a large part of Maliovany’s archive from the early years. His works are defined by the accent on colour and formal aspects. In 1960s-1970s, the photographer was deeply interested in the various kinds of manipulations – collages, solarizations, posterizations, etc. He was considered to be one of the most technically advanced authors in Kharkiv, who was acquainted with the complicated recipes of colour printing.
