In terrain again with hard core guys from UWPS & Fox Divers co.! This is my lovest long-term documentary project.
The Hydronaut project was brought to the attention of the Visura Network. This means that photo editors from magazines and newspapers can learn about this extraordinary story. I am dedicated to the Hydronaut Project as a photographer and content director ✌
Portrait of Maria Sidova, Slovak laureate Memory of Nations Award 2023.
Portrait of former political prisoner Jan Litomiský, who was imprisoned by the communists for 3 years. After his release, he was followed by secret security, and for the next five years he had to report to the police station five times a week, including weekends.
Portraying such a personality is not about light. Light is just a backdrop that creates emotion and impression. A portrait is about the relationship between the photographer and the person being portrayed.
Memory of Nations Award 2023. For the NGO company Post Bellum, I have been photographing portraits of the laureates of the Memory of the Nation Award for the fourth year. What is it like, photographing people aged 85+ who survived the Holocaust, Nazism and the monstrosity of the communist regime in the Eastern Bloc, I will try to write a text on my Medium profile soon. For those interested in the technique - I am working with digital medium format for the first time this year. Reason? It’s not so much about the significantly better technical quality of the photos, but I need to slow down. Mentally slow down.
The photographs, which were originally created as a documentary cycle about working divers, become part of the corporate visual identity of UWPS. The new website and corporate communication for UWPS is being prepared by the content studio Fundament Creative. A great example of the author’s documentary photography finding application in the commercial sphere as well.
