Art comes not only in a visual form, but it´s also present in human culture and knowledge. For modern photography, I have chosen a well-known painting as my concept. The new photograph becomes a token of history and tells its story not only in its own visual form, but also in the symbols and story of the original painting. That transcribes the photography into a new original work inspired by the famous artist. There are many symbols hidden in the photo which people used to read and now feel them instinctively.

I started to work as a professional photographer just prior to enrolling to study the history of art at Charles’ University in Prague. I have received numerous awards for my work, both in the Czech Republic and abroad. As my motto, I have adopted the impressionist painter Renoir’s words “There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them“
