Aerial Abstract Series DOTS

Using old fabric I create circular objects and capture them in with a
drone creating abstract visuals.

Michal Zahornacky is a visual artist working with photography and the human figure. He is currently based in Slovakia.

As a photographer, he tends to promote an artistic approach to each genre he focuses on. He sits his work somewhere near the thin line between reality and fiction. In recent years, he has been inspired by topics such as identity, dynamics, traditions or the body.

Michal’s photographs are strong and focused, with few details pointing towards specific thought or emotion.
