Tugendhat

May 29, 2024

What might Greta Tugendhat have felt when she left Villa Tugendhat in the spring of 1938? Fear? Anxiety? Anger? Under the threat of the rising Nazism, she emigrated to Switzerland and Venezuela with her husband and two children. She returned to the villa for the first time in 1967,...

Naples

May 29, 2024

Shock. Disillusionment and uncertainty. Those were the feelings that overtook us when we arrived in Naples and went for a walk around the city. We even made it to the famous Quartieri Spagnoli – the Spanish Quarter, where there are narrow alleys, tall buildings, laundry hanging between them, and...

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius

May 24, 2024

It’s 11:00 AM and I am waiting at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, shivering from the cold and checking my phone every few minutes. My company consists of a shabby souvenir shop and a few black vendors selling everything from clothing to statues made of black lava stone. Around...

My Photographic Diary

May 14, 2024

During my work on my bachelor’s thesis at ITF in 2012/2013, a multitude of photographs were created. At one point, when I was deciding how to approach them, I arranged them into trios, and I still find this arrangement appealing, even though for the final selection, I ultimately chose...

I am as I am

May 14, 2024

My practical bachelor’s thesis at the Institute of Creative Photography (ITF) in 2013: Photographing myself helps me gain the necessary peace and perspective in situations when I need it. When I deal with things, people, events that I don’t understand, that make me unhappy or force me to make...

Madrid

April 11, 2024

Back in September 2008, I was strolling around the streets of Madrid as an ordinary tourist. This little girl caught my eye immediately. I quickly grabbed the camera and pressed the shutter, creating the motion effect. I still like the photo a lot. And I wonder where she is...

Missing

March 17, 2024

In 2007, I found kindred spirits among the Brno photographers who met every Wednesday evening at a café or pub. Vojtěch Sláma, Roman Franc, Gabriela Kolčavová, and Evžen Sobek were the ones I felt good with at that time. Thanks to them, I learned about ITF, as Roman and...

Alone

March 17, 2024

I love those peaceful moments with a book when I’m alone. I cherish the freedom I have when I’m alone. I appreciate all the places I can visit when I’m alone. If only I didn’t miss you so much… when I’m alone.

Storm over the hills

March 17, 2024

Whenever it rains, eventually it stops and the sun comes out. Even though it may not seem like it sometimes. And we feel like it’s going to rain forever. And if it doesn’t stop for a long time, we can always go elsewhere. Change the place, the people, the...

Barborka

March 15, 2024

In the summer of 2006, little Barborka came to visit us with her mom – my cousin Gretka. Barborka really bonded with me during those few days together, so she didn’t mind when I took her pictures. It was also a unique experience for me because I hadn’t photographed...
